Questions on SR6


Does anybody here know what the seagoing depth is on a flooded hull SR6 commercial oil with a 150hp´ish engine?
My ramp is located up a small river, and depth sometimes go down to less than 50-60cm due to sanding up, so i am starting to worry about being able able to launch my new(shit old) rib at all?
Harbour docks has a five year waiting periode in my region, so i´d rather not go there.

With my flooding hole open, my tubes are in the water about an inch or two. So measure the depth from an inch above the bottom of the tubes to your keel. With it sealed off, my tubes sit well clear of the water by at least an inch.
