RIBase
Tubes clearing the water at plaining speed

Hello

I am wondering if there are other Valiant Dr 490 users out there and if they can tell me if the tubes at the stern of the rib clear the water when crusing. Mine don't is this typical of a 5m rib

cant say about the valiant, but all are subtlety different, so there is no typical really.
Mine do on the tornado 5.1, from memory , the ribcraft 4.8 and the SR4 don't (waiting to be shot down there).
