thought u guys would like this. when i get bored i tend to look for stupid answers to stupid questions. Maybe the yacht pic answers my real question. My only REAL stuff was in a 3m rib off of calshot, im still convinced my drop of throttle made it worse. Is a stuff really just getting wet when u hit a following wave?? if so ive done it more times than can count! i kinda presumed a real stuff is when the nose is burried so hard you either submerge (like boatmad vids)or it stops the front of the boat completly regardless of what the backs trying to do, this could result in broach or hooking maybe too??
imho I think the most common is the second type especially in ribs... anyone agree?? due to speeds etc. if so why do so many people presume a rib with larger tubes and an upswept bow to reduce chances of stuffing. Could that not infact increase chances as there is more of a wall to impact into a wave??would a smaller bow such as maybe, banana shark, revenger, phantom not mearly punch through instead of stopping??
My boat is amazing in a following sea and it has a very low profile front... and no tubes!! its also stepped and doest raise its nose to any great extent but it does have a huge flare in bow section that makes it excel, i do get wet sometimes and it aint so good in a head sea or solent chop!!
just thinking aloud and not a rib driver so have no first hand experience of ribs and stuffs
