Exactly! Hence my loaded reply! Codders believes all ribs are light in the nose just cause his is!!!! I suggest he gets himself to ribex or soutamtpon boat show and experiences some different hull designs ribs and not! Any planning hull will have some upward travel when meeting a head sea but the amount and change in angle are very dependant on hull design and c of g to mention jus a few things, (otherwise all hard boats would be great in a head sea surely?) it is not the fact a tube is stuck on the outside!!!

I thought that was what you meant when you said "ALL RIBS ARE THE SAME".

Boat layout

Must admit being a RIBCRAFT owner I have seen some changes on the boat layout recently. IBWETs boat and another New one in NI (Can't remember the guys name) all have the console a little bit more forward than mine. Could it be that RIBCRAFT has started to notice this charateristic.

I sometimes wish my console was a little farther forward but until I've been on one of the newer boats I don't know how much difference this actually makes. It might be as codders say all RIBs are a bit flighty at the front and no end of shoving things forward is going to make much of a difference to how it reacts when it hits waves at relatively high speed.

Hold on for one dam second. RIB's have to meet all sorts of conditions from Rough to billiard table smooth. Surely this is where water ballast tanks come in. You just fill em to the required capacity for the conditions.

If you can't shift weight easily then it's always gonna be a compramise.

Yes?

Totally agree!!!

And although posted before this is a classic example.

Obviously with a full load of pax on board this RIB will be nicely balanced but there are times when the RIB will have to run empty and as anyone can see this RIB is a tad light at the bow!!! A bow ballast tank would make all the difference.
