He's probably just slowed down.

Sometimes it's difficult to appreciate exactly what's going on from a snapshot.

....Or slowly powering up. Maybe it's the down-force created by the rear spoiler?!

Possibly, but from the photo I'd say that there's little doubt that the engine is trimmed way too far out.

John

I agree with JK here, the engine seems to be trimmed out to far, and I would say he is at a slow speep, possibly accelerating slowly.

As RB says he may have just slowed down from a high speed run, hence why the engine is still trimmed out (although a little too much). The angle of the boat (nose skywards) suggests he is accelerating, in which case he should be trimmed down.
The Advert is incorrect anyway as Ribcraft don't make a 5.6m, it is infact a Ribtec Freeway 5.5m , these have been discussed on here quite recently.

I'm pretty sure it is a Ribcraft Vision actually, although they do look pretty similar. The Vision was based on the 585 hull, but came out at 5.6m

I think your right John, my mistake after a bit of googling they appear to be to be seperate boats, although they do look very, very similar. The Ribtec Freeway is 5.5m and the Ribcraft Vision is 5.6m. Having said that neither would be my choice!

1. Ribcraft Vision
2. Ribtec Freeway

I couldn't find a picture showing the spray rails on the Ribtec, but those pictures show the difference clearly.

Other than that the similarity is uncanny. Pure coincidence apparently!
