Various questions from a newbie

Guys, your chance to give me a little help and advice please. I am the proud owner of a new 6m rib with Suzuki 90 (which I have to say absolutely purrs along ). My simple questions are

1) Can anyone explain to me what causes 'chine riding' at least I think that's what it is. Over about 30 knots the boat starts bouncing off each side of the hull, almost a pendulum effect getting bigger and bigger. Have I got the trim wrong or is it just too much speed in the prevailing conditions?

2) Should I look out for, or specify anything in particular when buying a new trailer. Roller guides? Swinging back bits/arms?

3) If I use two mooring lines onto a swinging mooring, which line should take the strain. The line attached to the bow D-ring or the line over the bow roller/cleat and onto the sampson post.

4) Is it possible to get a complete boat cover for daily use which will protect the entire boat, but doesn't need straps which go under the hull (not practical on a swinging mooring)

TIA

Erin, just been shopping for a boat cover and ended up with one from Bembridge Outboards. 165, heavy duty with bungy cord all around and loops if you do want to tie it down.

Do a search on Ribnet for chine walking it has been discussed before,

Regards

Pete

Hi Erin!!

When securing to a mooring always the line from the D ring on the bow to take the strain as it is then secured to the strongest point of securing to on the bow of the boat!! The lines then dont put to much weight on your tubes and dont scuff them either!!

Hope that was of some use to you!!

Don't buy a roller coaster ttrailer with Oval axles for the rollers. Indispension in particular. Also make sure you rollers are kept on the axles by something better than a star washer

The trailers I like most are RM, Reba (Belgian I think), SBS and Parrymore

Thanks for the advice. I will look into Parrymore trailers. Just one other thing, how should elephant tubes be fixed to the transom. As far as I can tell on my boat they have been zip-tied onto the plastic sleeve which passes through the transom. Should there be glue in there as well? Will have to cut off the zip tie to see if glue has been used.

Zip tie ? most builders use glue / sealant and a couple of jubilee clips
