    Default Shoe/rideplate help.

    Pulled and machined intake for shoe, used a buddy's shoe for mock up and now looking to purchase one for my self. Question is what's best for my boat as a starting point. 1976 18ft bubble deck eliminator. Turbocharged sbc. 600-800hp depending on boost level. Pump is in stock location. Not sure what else is needed as far as boat info? Thanks, Brent.

    Eliminator made two Bubble decks ,one with a radiused keel and the second with a flat keel. Which one do you have?

    The 18 Eliminator is a boat because of the strake design on the bottom does not like to run alot of nose attitude. It has a tendency of running a little flatter so a backcut shoe is not where I would start. A flat shoe or a 1 degree tapered shoe is where I would start and see how the boat likes it. Then after you establish a baseline, adjustment can be made.
