When you say sea trials, is this just testing the rib or are you testing your rib ?

Ribcraft sea trial all their new boats that are 5.85m and above, before handover to the customer ......................I could have joined them but I was busy that day.

During the trials they found that it was over propped with the standard 3 blade SS prop, so Mercury sent them a couple of 4 blade Revolution 4 props to try as that particular prop was designed for that style of boat ............ I am pretty careful with it as the REV4 props are £650 each .............

The only other issue was large rooster trails from the transducers  ............ Garmin provided diffusers and angle adjustments to overcome the problem .............
