Last time we spoke about how to perform proper maintenance on your RIB for the longevity of your product. At Hysucat, we want to make sure that you enjoy your RIB as long as possible and keep its high performance lasting forever. Here are more tips into how you can take care of your RIB. Proper Maintenance Engine and Battery Maintenance Another important feature in maintaining your RIB is making sure that you do NOT store your boat with fuel still in its system. Doing this can cause a separation of oil and gas due to the two-stroke engine and possibly condensation, leading to serious problems later on. Drain the fuel using a freshwater source for the cooling system and make sure to disconnect the fuel line as the engine is running. To ensure that the engine is completely free of any saltwater, flush your engine with fresh water. Doing this will ensure that your engine will not corrode. A
Bering 70 recently made a cruising from Antalya to Cyprus. The distance of more than 420 km was passed within 26 hours. We left the port of Kemer at 6 p.m. on Friday and following by the full moon started our journey across the absolutely calm sea. It was a wonderful luck that the weather in the middle of January was sunny and the predictions promised that the sea would be smooth for a several days. The aim of this journey was to deliver the demo version of Hysucat RIB 28 to be available for sea trials in Cyprus. Hysucat 28 is 8.5 m length RIB. Fuel capacity – 60 gal. (227 litres) Maximum speed – 60 Mph (52 knots). The plan was to get inside Hysucat and to cross the distance of 100 km left in an hour and a half while Bering 70 would continue to cross it at its cruising speed of 8 knots. Bering 70 provided

Why Can’t Standard Boats Go As Fast As Cars? Have you ever been curious as to why a powerful, recreational boat can’t make the same speed as a standard car? The answer lies in friction. A standard car only needs a bit more than one hundred horsepower to reach one hundred miles an hour, but getting a boat to do that same speed through the water takes a few hundred or more horsepower. Why is this the case? Primarily, it’s because water is about a whopping eight hundred times denser than air. Imagine standing on a dock in ten knots of wind. That’s a relatively simple thing for any person to accomplish. Now imagine standing in a river in ten knots of current. Regardless of how strong you are, you’ll be swept away by the force of the current. This is due to the density of the water. The hull of a boat has to push through tons of dense
When you think of purchasing a boat, the first things that come to mind are center consoles, sailboats, bowriders, catamarans, and other typical boats that are ideal for relaxing or fishing.
