Valiant VG 400 third voyage - report

Today went on my first trip alone (85kg) . This time the performance was a lot better. On the first trip we reached 31 km/h (340kg 5 people) but today I reached 50km/h. On the first trip the top rpm was 5600, this time WOT rpm was 6200 aprox. Fuel consumption must have been 6lt/h but I will confirm that next week.
Stability was ok once on the plane but until then the boat kept jumping crazy. I thought it was the trim but no. The river was flat and calm.
I kinda wanted someone to explain that to me.
Here are some pics of Parque das Nações in Lisbon, and Ponte Vasco da Gama.
