Ynor 930

Finally!
after working the last 3 weeks rigging my new Ynor 930 RIB
i had it out yesterday, first tests with Volvo D6 370 shows
55 knot's.
Further trimming an propeller testing will hopefully give
2-3 more knots, since we were hitting max Revs.
Top speed is not important as the boat will go in comercial traffic
in Norway, but its fun to see the potensial.

hopefully in cruising speed 43 knot's we will have more power left
and can run at about 3.100 RPM

The boat had very good acceleration and the handling is very good.
Its soft to ride but for the size its fun an sporty.
its weight is about 1800-1900 kg, hasnt weighed it yet, but
will do when finished.

Also fitted it with a Coastkey (www.coastkey.com) cordless killswitch and it works perfect on the Volvo

More reports to come.

Reminds me of 'Er Indoors driving.

As I said to her: "Elspeth dear, this is a boat, not an aeroplane. Some parts of it are supposed to stay in the water..."

Dieselroy,
That's really impressive performance, nice looking lines and what an engine/prop setup! I take it you're happy with the duo-drive prop performing that nice balancing act, you could take it to the Med and pull 10 or 20 skiers just for laughs. Better still take me and tow the Searider around at those speeds! LOL
Cheers,
Paul

Were those photos with the engine trimmed out for effect or is the bow that light with that diesel in the back?

Thanks for coments.
The pics where taken with the drive as i usually have it for most speed
but we did accelerate into the waves
This is close to an island building up from 180 meters to 0.
but we took it a bit further out an had no problems going 50 knots
with the drive a bit in an the tabs slightly down.

i had about 100 ltrs. of diesel onboard.
The boat is quite heavy in the rear with the D6, but it don seem to be a problem with the balance.
It performs really well.

Regards
Dieselroy
