The orange boat in the bottom right is a V24 - probably the last Pascoe one ever made and the one he raced himself - very quick for a lot of reasons!

Ribs at rest

Being a diver and only having my head stuck out of the water whilst waiting to be picked up, I get to see lots of ribs at rest and it is a good question.
My Crompton has a very shallow vee but the tubes don't touch the water until the boat is laden with 6-8 sets of dive kit and some er, shall we say; portly, divers?!

Some ribs are designed to sit low in the water when stationary, for stability, take your searider. Isn't there a hole in the transom to allow the lower part of the hull to flood when stationary and drain whilst moving?

Obviously tubes in the water gives you some advantages:

- better stability
- lower freeboard for getting people in out the water

However there may be some disadvantages

- drag in the water (which may slow you down a bit - although cookie obviously doesn't worry about that so probably neither should the rest of us!)
- weed growing on tubes if kept afloat

With "high" tubes it may be possible to sit "lower in" the boat rather than "on" the boat which may make it less likely to fall out! Likewise you can achieve a higher freeboard keeping water off the deck.

As well the two extreeme of "always touching the water" at rest and "never touch the water" at rest - there will be some boats which don't touch when empty but touch when heavily laden.
