RIBS at rest.........

Debate:

I would be interested to know why some ribs sit on their toobs at rest and others dont. My rib sits on its toobs and is very stable. How does your rib sit at rest? What are the pro's and con's?

Rear of the tubes have growth on now due to heavier Yam.
SR4 can wobble when moving side to side due to not having tubes in contact with the water.

Dya reckon sealing it off would keep the toobs clear of the water?

No chance with the Yam on, might have had a chance with the clamshell.

Couple of 5 gallon containers under the tubes would also sort it.
