E-Ribbing is an international website with significant and timeless themes that focuses exclusively on the rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) and anything related to them, such as articles on outboard engines and propellers, equipment and proper boat set-ups, RIB tests and of course trips.
The team at E-Ribbing is made up of highly regarded personalities within the marine field and nautical press from Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal, all of whom are specialized in inflatable boats, outboard engines, and long trips.
Enjoy the many videos of these fascinating Rigid Inflatables Boats (RIBs).
Getting on plane with the 300SR trim tabs activation. The RIB was standing on plane at slower speed, keeping its bow clearly lower without even increasing fuel consumption significantly.
Lowering the trim tabs by 50%, we measured 3 seconds less time of planning with the minimum raise of the bow on starting.
Then we focused on our recordings in low cruise speeds with which we will usually travel most hours of the day. Keeping the engine trim constant at 40%, we started experimenting with the position of the vertical 300SR trim tabs.
It was obvious that when the trim tabs were completely pulled up, the bow insisted on standing very high and in no case could we have a decent cruise in the area of 15 to 25 knots.
For the last two years we have been working very hard to make real another feat that is about to take place in the summer of 2022.
It is a truly great journey, most of which will take place within the Arctic Circle. We will navigate on the wake of Vikings and great 18th-century explorers who dedicated their lives to discover the shortest passage to the Pacific Ocean.
In more detail, we will attempt to navigate the North Atlantic Ocean in order to reach the west coast of Greenland and afterwards try to cross the legendary North West Passage.
The Northwest Passage is the sea route, approximately 5,780 kilometers, located north of Canada and Alaska, linking the Atlantic with the Pacific Ocean.
