    I guess, you are not aware, for how many people, you are, the rich one!!
    I mean you’re riding a 8,50 rib that costs, i’m guessing 50-60k pounds, maybe more. I’m dreaming about 6,50 rib for years. I can’t afford to think about buying one. If I had the money only for material, I would built it myself, from scratch. Try to put it this way: what is the percentage of the people in the world, that can own a beauty like yours?! You, my friend, are privileged one. Happy riding and love your video!

    True, I dont know how much gallons per hour, but when running normal speed (30 knots) it takes about 35 liters an hour, but from there it goes exponential to wot at 50 knots with 118 liters an hour. 300 liter tank should be able to make 270 nautical mile according to the manufacturer of the boat, but I rather don’t keep track of my usage, cause it makes me sick here in holland (2,2 us a liter)

    90% of people that post here have probably never been in the ocean. Nice boat and good control. What gph are u getting at cruise/ size of gas tank?

    Spot on thanks for posting. It never looks as impressive when you mount the camera on the frame as the wave look flatter. How would it look with the camera mounted on your head?

    Guys, everybody can have his/her own opinion, I just want to keep the boat and myself in one piece, its very easy to break stuff and unless you’re a rich ass, you would care about your hard earned boats or any other stuff.

    I didn’t say I had a fishing boat in fact! These are not huge waves either and in most fishing boats you don’t have to wear wet suit and goggles! Anyway not a bad video in all and good for you.

    Well than I would like to see a video of your fishingboat in similar conditions without breaking your back, and there is no fuss, its just a nice movie about a good boat, thats all.

    Same old thing. Because RIBS are light you have to go very slow in these conditions. A good fishing boat would do this no problem so not sure what all the fuss is about!!!

    Riding the sea head vs with? The differences are massive, and can’t really compare directly because they push different aspects of the boats performance/design. The fastest speeds achieved in each condition are naturally going to be different-each posing different risks. The boat’s lenght/hull vs wave frequency vs speed, vs amount of V, vs weight ratio-front to rear all play a major factor in how fast you can run her and how she will perform etc. etc.

    I have been out in high seas and a video has never really done it justice. it looks as if he is out by himself so im guessing he is riding with caution as would anyone with any sense in that situation! good video if you ask me! and nice boat!
