Monty Halls new humber

What type of humber rib did Monty Hall have on his trip to St Kilda? I thought that it looks as if the bow was riding very high?

She's a 6m Destroyer with a 90 Etec....supplied / kitted out by John at Quinquari Marine (member on here).

Couple of pics from a few weeks ago when 'Razorbill' (my boat) and 'Gemma' (Monty's boat) were out together....

'Razorbill' is a 6.5 ocean, and quite a bit wider in the beam than Gemma....Razorbill also has quite a bit more freeboard /bigger tubes...which is not always popular with tired divers....In real terms that meant 'Gemma' was as quick as 'Razorbill' (150 Opti)....although I think we had more weight on board with twinsets, rebreathers and camera housings etc My excuse anyway....
