I have two 90lt tanks both under the deck.

The first is in the middle of the boat.

Later I added a second 90 lt tank just after the first and towards the back of the boat. It is between my back bench and the console.

I think I already found the solution. I am planning to present later a case study of the problem, and make it an example of bad weight distribution on a small RIB.

Dimitris,

From the full lenght of your boat and the positions of the tanks, I assume that the total weight is far towards to the stern. I know that it's rather immpossible to relocate the tanks, so I think that you should have to live with it. The exact triming AND the correct speed is the answer.

Michael,

I am planning to take out the second 90lt. tank and replace it
with a new 50 lt tank positioned in front of the middle tank towrds the bow of the boat.

Dimitris,

That's the best thing to do. I have one 120 l installed just behind the anchors locker, 45 cm behind the very bow.

Dimitris,

Where do you launch your rib usually ?
Most of the time I sail in Saronic gulf, Gaidouronisi, Egina or Makronisos at the oposite side etc.

Michael,

I usually launch my boat in the south evoikos gulf, but I would not
mind trying the saronikos gulf.

If you want we can arrange going out for ribbing together through
private messaging or e-mail.
