    Default Intake install angle

    I had to remove my intake (old putty) 0n my 1975 18 ft KURTIS 500 jetboat and had it machined for a shoe. when i went to reinstall it i noticed the the center area between stakes (keel) start to come up about 20 in. in front of the intake about 1/4 in. and goes back down to true keel at the transom. becuose the intake goes up in the front it was sitting in the bout at a 4 3/4 to 5 degrees off true keel. is this a problem ?
    should i raise up the back of the intake as much as posable to get the as close to 4 degrees than shim down the the shoe to keel?
    what is the best shoe and ride plate set up to handle this.
