Never had that in any of the Redbays that I've had, the shape and flair in the bow tend to push the majority of the water away and take most of the power out of what is left.

2002 Ramsgate - we had a failure of the bow tank connection and ended up filling the boat full of water instead of the bow tank and ended up with unpredictable handling resulting in stuffing through of a couple of waves before we sorted it all out!

not wanting to contradict alan but would it not be better to have a complete tube around the bows to help absorb the initial impact of stuffing but with a very sturdy bow locker to stop the tubes from lifting upwards and back thus giving the best support for the tube

Hi Paul. Where have you been, I have been trying to get in touch with you about putting a bow section on one of our boats!
I aggree, that a "Full Tube" is more suited to ribs up to 10 metre, but anything after that it all becomes a bit of a problem in "interesting seas"
I was up in Ireland and Scotland at the weekend and there is no question, the Storm Force 11.5 is one hell of a boat and just punches through anything that is thrown irs was. On the way back from Port Patrick I was on ahard noes Scorpion in difficult head seas and again it did its job where as a full tube would have stuffed. At the end of the day it is down to the sea conditions as to which type is best. My version of big seas is proberbly very different to most peoples.

I will give you a call about putting my tube back on.

Cheers

Alan P

Are RIBS with hard noses not the mongrel's of the RIB word, not the Thoroughbred's like a true inflatable collar boat.

Its like a speedboat with Fenders....or not
