Tornado 5.4 Light in the bow?
coming in to boating season again, and cant wait to get back on it after i get my trailer fixed! Last year, i spent a lot of my time waiting on good weather and light winds, because even in small sea my tornado is very slammy, and seems far too light in the bow. the previous owner was a diver and had it built to suit - there is a bottle rack forward of the console, and then the anchor stowage section infront of that again. When i am out, i keep my spare fuel tank up front to try and keep the bow down a bit when coming in to the sea. Engine trim works to an extent, but then the boat starts to pitch when i trim too far in. Was thinking about adding some weight as ballast up forward, what you reckon? Anyone else have this problem? is it a weight issue, or just the joys of a badly designed hull?
Moving the console forward is not really an option as it is moulded into the deck
I think i'll buy a boat*
