UGH What is happening here? We keep fliping over.
Ok so I'm a noob and maybe you will tell me this is normal.
We have a 00 GTX RFI, it seems to tip to the Left alot. We have capsized it 3 x now. The first time I though it was just us, now i'm thinking otherwise. This weekend my brother-in-law was on it and the same thing happened to him.
Are these models just naturally more left heavy then right?
Do they just roll easily?
Could something be causing me to lean to the Left? (steering needing adjusting, sponers etc.)
Please help I'm tired of spending time upside down lol.

I am here to tell you that I am 6'3" and about 220lbs and I can climb onto my '02 GTX (951 carb) from either side in deep water and stand with both feet in one footwell and it will not turn over.
That is one of the most stable hulls SD ever made. The RFI is speced out to be a few pounds heavier but on a boat designed to carry three adults that would not matter.
That said, have you noticed a lot of water coming out when you pull out and take the drains loose? Have you pulled the seat while on the water to see if you have any in the hull (a little is normall, depending on what you are doing, but a lot, like over the drive shaft, is not).

it might just be me, but I have found every rfi boat that I have been on to lean...

Check to see if someone removed all the foam from that side. Not sure why anyone would do that but it's worth a shot?

The foam only matters if the boat sinks. It adds nothing to an intact hull.

so far all we found was the steering was misaligned to the left, so we are realigning it and gonna try it out on the water to see if made a difference.
