    Dang, they told me there would be a delay in delivery, and then I find this! Guess I won't be selling my RW after all.

    "Righting moment? Uh, I think we checked that"
    seriously though, it sort of looked like something was going on during the launch, like one side of the launch trailer was staying higher than the other?
    would they still have needed to fit her out? Add ballast, fuel etc?

    They said that it was only partially ballasted, and that they were going to add more ballast once it got in the water. I wonder if the manufacture can recover from this. It said that was a 10M boat.
