Help! Help! The Admin Team are picking on me!
I would like to take this opportunity to correct my usage of the E-Factor. It is a "multiplier" and so should have read E0.50
You'll see a bit more of it over the coming months:
For top speeds in RIBs it's generally E0.85
For sea state experienced by RIBbers it's usually something similar
For fish that got away it can be as low as low as E0.20
A rough rule of thumb for the Exaggeration Factor is the amount that you feel tempted to embellish a story recounted down the pub...
BTW, I've covered fuel filters on my old transom, maybe 8 inches, and kept my feet dry at the controls. The water gathers there.
