This gave us the console position, and fuel tank position etc, so then under the decks we said the fuel need to go here so longitudinals and bulkheads here etc. Hopefully giving you a balanced boat..

Was the A-frame mass factored into your balance/COG calculations?

I was speaking with one of their technical people from Poole a few months ago re the 85. He was saying they are so light the RNLI are looking to lay lead ignots in the hull to increase their weight and make the 85's less skitty.

Have to say, having seen it afloat it really looks the biz !!!

They make ever such a loud bang when they drop them on slipways

skittish? lol its not a keel boat please tell me they didnt put lead in them! love the atlantics but they always seem underpowered compared to pleasure ribs (yes yes i know range and life span) but the 85s are brilliant. if they want to make them heavier they should just make em out of s glass using carbon fiber for the stringers etc not far off the same weight and strength but a shed load cheaper.

As well as the things you have already mentioned, its to stop throttle happy Helms just gunning the throttles and flipping them when they pumped up with adrenaline trying to reach the incident.
