Finally had the rib delivered Flatacraft F6, and tried her out today.
First experience of helming a rib, they have a huge grin factor dont they.
Had to get used to the fact that the engine/prop torque wants to turn her to starboard, loosen your grip on the wheel and off she goes. I believe there is a way to adjust this yes?
Think I'll change to hydaulic steering anyway.
Dont like the trottle controls very stiff at the moment.
Ran well with following swell, and on the return into wind and swell proved a dry boat, at 20-25kts. Cant wait to have some more fun
