Now an hour in Distant Rumble charging down the waves could be exhilarating

The RYA Powerboat handbook suggests that going down a wave too fast is what causes it to put the bow under. Whilst going too slowly is what causes it to turn the boat beam on, and then capsize.

I teach that you can almost safely surf the boat, or just travel a shade faster than the speed of the waves so they don't catch you, but not so fast you punch through the trough. As soon as you get to the trough, its power back on up the next.

I don't know how to tell you this, but if that's your intension, you chose the wrong type of boat!

There are few 'wetter' rides than a rib! (there's a couple at Thorpe Park I think)
