Not a rib, but possible overpowered.....



The boat need to be pretty well balanced to go +100 knots, its only 6.25 long. Still not for everyone, it looks like the driver works much of the time with the wheel to counter chine walking.

I've been sitting here having a cuppa and read through these posts, what a load of bollox, people with no idea about fast boats should leave well alone, if you guys are so professional the why aren't you all doing it for a living, the boundaries are pushed to find out and test other ideas, just like in car racing, if everyone backed off when we got a little chine walk then there probably wouldn't be progressive Chines, planing pads, reverse chine, swept and straight rails, the list goes on.
Chine walk, hooking and all the rest of the shyte can happen to almost all boats, just takes a twat to put it together and another one to drive it

YES, happy now, I'm sure someone will have there opinion on that, do it right and don't put something on the back that will sink it the answers yes, you won't be able to insure it and you will need a bow tank, jack plate maybe and trim tabs

Oh, I thought we had, in great detail.

But if not, then yes, more often that not it will go faster, without any handling problems, unless it's rigged by someone who's clueless.
