when he first launched would you say that he wasnt far enough in the water when he was released ?

and as such the props couldnt bite quick enough in clear water as was mentioned they are in "tunnels" if all you have comming through the tunnels is fast flowing airiated water then you aint going to get any grip and as such you will struggle with thrust


Stripes, we like stripes just need some stars now !

the boat was at aldborugh ,from what i was told at an rnli training day one of the fall ropes got fast around the prop pulling the boat to starboard before the rope cutter cut through ,the cox sent the crew forward to lessen the weight at the stern and he just bulldozed it off the beach into clear water ,its now known at mersey class stations as doing an aldborough .so if the cox shouts aldborough the crew know what to do .
