This was something that Tint,HPJ,I and others talked about yesterday!
Ride plate settings! It is understandable that some of us or all go off keel set at 0* and set all the hardware from this point! This is the way alot of us do it! But, lastnight I did some checking and if you are running a tapered shoe you can set the rideplate with a stright edge off the shoe! If some of you guys would check this out and let me know if I am right it would be great!
Set the keel at 0* and take a long stright edge at keel and see what the tip end of the rideplate is from the stright edge! (Barring that the shoe is even with keel!)
18" rideplate will have about a 7/8" gap
19" rideplate will have about a 1" gap
these are at a 3-4* angle to keel! This is just to see if my thoughts are correct and I am doing this right! I used a dig.angle finder and it showed the same 3* at rideplate with the hull keel at 0*
Just Coby rambling! LOL! Fireaway!
