Have you had a chance to use the Flume stabilizers? A bit unusual in a boat that size. More usually seen in cruise ships and big passenger ferries.
Hi McGillicuddy,

Yes - the boat as been all over the pacific.

Yes - The flume tank is always in use. It works perfectly at anchor and while are the marina and really does help in big seas.

Years went into the design and build of the tank to get it right, but I would say the owner persisted with good results in the end. Around 800 litres sits in the tank.
