HP, what you say to a run through the Straits together, you can jump on my rib to get a better look at how your rib is running, it's never easy to tell when you sat in it? we can even share some jelly babies

If low compression, would it sound different. Feels like the engine is pushing, just that the boat feels heavy/dragging.
How far are you from shrewsbury? I know of a lake there you could chuck it on to test it, empty boat of gear etc to lighten it, happy to meet u there if you want a 2nd pair of eyes/opinion, cheers

All

A) what's the make up of the Humber OPro hull/deck. If its got ply in between the grp, could it have got in?

B)how would you find out if it has?

C) what do you do if it has?

you can start buy pulling some out the screws holding the seats in and checking that the holes are sealed usually with epoxy sealer and then a squirt of Sika and prod the wood under the under the grp deck and ensure its firm and dry.

Also the rubbing strake you fitted is it D Section

I think that's a good call.

Rubbing strake. Not sure, don't think so. Why? Thanks for post btw

I reckon every new boat should come with a 'dry weight' certificate on purchase. That way you could do a calculation to see if you're carrying water. Then the next thing is to find somewhere that could weigh it?

Someone mention earlier about water entering via witches hat? Do you know if the under deck trunking is sealed or is perforated to allow any water to escape into hull void that can then be drained from the bung.

probably won't be back for a couple of weeks ourselves, but just let me know when you are next going and we can see what we can sort, even if you dad wants to try that fine with me, but he'll have to have your share of the jelly babies
