....the engine being too low combined with incorrect trim would all lead to the trait you described.

Yup.

A Caribe (OP's prev rib) with the relatively shallow V hull would have been far more forgiving of being trimmed wrongly.

It was such a nice day I thiought I would take the day off and get on with moving that console.
Thanks jock for glueing it down with grip fill as well as screwing it, that made it so much easier to get off

It's also the correct way to do it

Unless he's used the wrong product it's not Gripfill it's probably Sikaflex 291 or the equivalent..
You should use it when you replace it as well or you'll end up with a rotten deck as water gets down the screw holes

Will it matter as it has the flooding hull ?

Yes, the deck is made of ply and the water will ingress into the ply the screws will let go and your console will disappear over the side when you are turning.

Not if you don't mind eventually standing in the flooded hull.

Are you Johnny Fuller?

If you are not then I genuinely do not believe your problem lies with your consoles position it certainly shouldn't affect yaw that much.

Your transom looks poor and without doubt your engine is in the wrong position and I agree with rib teccie that your very poorly blocked flooding hull outlet may not be waterproof so you may be enjoying some free surface effect.

Are you absolutely sure that your transom is dry and solid, because if its flexing that gives you all sorts of handling issues.

I am fairly sure your hull was a deluxe by the way. The last 5.4 we did was very well set up I will try and post some pics of the engine /transom.

I'm taking the 5.4 out soon if you want to come down to Southampton I'll take you out and show you what a well set up 5.4 drives like

what a transom should look like before the engine goes on

http://www.rib.net/forum/attachment....1&d=1321123720 note the surplus holes are sealed and filled using epoxy putty

The hull was dry when i opened up the seal, only condensation

The transom seems solid, I took all the sealent out last night and drying it out today then fill it up with fibre fill later.

Does anyone know what these wooden things are ?

Console moved forward, extra one added, transom cleaned up and deck painted. Time to get on the water.
