Like I said mine rides great in all conditions and can cope with anything I can throw at it, however there is always room for improvement

You lot should have got a 6.2. You'd be perfectly balanced 100% of the time

I had a 6.5 prior to the 7m, I didn't ever consider it bow light. In fact, it was very 'planted' when compared to Roycruse's RC 585.

Why did I have to say anything??!!

Might have to eat a large slice of humble pie
Went out for a quick wiz today, and back on the slip I discovered a small problem-ette, that I think I have had since I got the boat on the water.
Don't want to go into details here, but dealing with it should fix any trim problems I have had
Really looking forward to the next outing
