Thank you for the compliment Stu - I was actually talking about the balance, but Kitten does pride himself on putting a boat together as if his life depended on it ........... and quite rightly too!

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.

I have noticed the slightly further forward consol on mine, but I thought it was made that way to balance the weight of the engine I picked? one negative is that you can't easily walk round the consol to the front because the gap between the tube and consol is just to small to get my brothel creeper through, so have to either walk on the tube or squeeze the foot through. I little off target in this thread,just thought I'd mention it.
