Default Rigger Questions

1) Could anyone tell the normal length of the tub , for a gas rigger ( not nitro )
2) does anyone have a vid of one coming in ( when done running ) Reason - these things do not seem to have to the bouancy/ area ( think thats spelled right ) to bring them in very slow and was wanting to see how these guys "catch" them when they come in ?
3) Average weight of a gas (Zen ) rigger ?

Thanks

( I have nitro versions , but , needless to say , a nitro motor is WAY less in weight and am just curious here )

Thanks ....
Reason I asked about bringin them in is that they seem a little shy on the area where they are in the water and I would think that with a 4 pound engine , that they would kinda sink a bit more than a nitro would .

Bob, like Captain said 38"-40" seems to be the norm. I run a all epxoy rigger that is 12.5 pounds and it floats all day long. Wood rigger's float even better in my opinion. Here is a short clip of mine coming in.
