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)
