I wish ...
But I do feel either a foot throttle or at least moving the throttle to the centreline (left hand) would be beneficial.
I suppose I could try slowing down as a last option? It's blowing F6 tomorrow, so I ought to go out for sea trials. The lack of bow bouyancy needs to be treated with a modicum of caution, but I want to go to the start of the Transat Jacques Vabre in November, which means a trek to Alderney, and then across to Le Havre, so I'd rather find out about seakeeping now, than in the Autumn.
how does fuel consumption change in rough weather for RIB's? Double, treble? My Nelson 42 used to nearly double in rough weather.
