Does anyone here have any experience of towing a rib behind a larger boat?
The larger boat has two kleats either side of the stern,the rib has towing eyes facing seaward on the rib (I asked RC to put them there for this purpose) positioned 4ft back from the bow each side.
My concern is firstly loading, in relation to snatch, when both boats are out of sequence on waves, also the direction of pull if two fixed bridles are used.
Initally I thought (and still think ) climbing rope doubled up for stretch as the main line but thats as far as I've got, a rope bridle similar to the one used by skiers on the back of the transom is also an option but It think there will be a significant difference once again in loads, is there a larger capacity one out there ..?
Originally had a 4SR this was easy to tow,I tied the line to one side and raised the engine revs on the same side,everything tracked straight.
But this RC is a lot larger/heavier.
Any idea's would be appreciated.
Another one for you JW
