First Outing with new Rib

I finally got my first outing with my new rib. It gives a very dry ride but can give your a very solid landing when coming off a wave. The Rib is quite forgiving with respect to stuffing. The max speed I got was 29.4 knots. and I travelled 37 nm for 17 lts of petrol. The trimming is very important with this rib as it tends to be stern heavy
