Hooking is no different to losing control of a car on a bend, it's a combination of too much speed, too tight a turn, lack of grip, poor surface conditions. Drive to the conditions, reduce speed, know your abilities, know your boat's capabilities etc. Hooking is predictable & avoidable.

They didn't seem to be pushing it very hard in that video, the hook appeared to be very gentle. But I guess MAIB don't want to publish videos showing a rib right on the limits in case people start copying what they are doing.

I agree, that was more of a controlled side slide, the kind of thing that an experienced, competent driver would execute on the errr........Top Gear test track Saying that, it probably felt a lot worse than it looked, in the same way that waves suddenly grow when you get out of the harbour

I suppose they aren't going to "replicate" an aggressive hook as they want to stay dry.

I think they gave a good demonstration of exactly what a "hook" is but with still being in control.

Maybe not a direct answer to Your question, but i have understand that if trimmed up in high speed and approaching a high speed turn, the leg should be trimmed down during the turn.

Actually if you trim it in too much you will encourage the bow to dig in and hook the boat, if you suddenly lift off in the middle of a turn that can also induce a hook - stepped boats are even more likely to spin out/hook if you lift off - I have to say our race RIB and the 770 would always gently spin out and never hook so it is to do with design.

I have found the report and this thread really educational. The video was also interesting. Thanks to everyone for the really interesting posts. Being a novice compared to others on here I was surprised at the hook video. I am sure it is tame compared to others experiences but it seemed quite dramatic to me. I have never experienced that in my rib, in fact I don't think mine will do that? Would it be right that that if the tubes are closer to the waterline it is less likely to happen. Or is it just that I have a smaller and much less powerful engine? My boat would more skid out gently than bite in. (So far, fingers crossed )
