I agree some photos would be a great help.I would not have been messed around like that and would have taken the rib back.Sounds like a MAJOR design fault.

Me too. In fact this whole moan is baffling me. I don't think we have enough information and there's more to this than meets the eye.

I don't see many 'Mine too' posts. Given the number of Humbers there are on here and in the world, I would have thought there would be. Be interesting to find out what's really going on.

Humber

I would drive it straight back to Humber and suggest they build a boat that floats without having to rebuild the transom and replace the engine etc.

Totaly unacceptable situation, phone a lawyer and get them on the case.

BOUYANCY BAGS!!!!

D rings on the back of the transom, and when at Anchor secure tightly a nice large bouyancy bag. This has duel purpose, to lift the transom that precious few inches, and to give the waves something to break over.

Genius I know.

Bouyancy bags are 24.99 in Yachtmail, Lymington.

Humber rarely fit below deck fuel tanks, preferring to install them inside the console. This explains the 'uniqueness' of this boat in its balance problems, most probably due to a large volume fuel tank towards the stern.
