    Default Backcut shoe vs tapered?

    Greg, I've been running a 2* backcut shoe for several years without any issues in my 18' cp. My new motor makes a lot more power than the previous motor (950hp @ 6700rpm, all motor) and now it lifts the transom and doesn't want to carry the nose. I know you favor a tapered shoe. So I have two questions: first how will a tapered shoe change the ride, and second what other changes will I need to make if I change to a tapered shoe? Thanks...

    You shouldn't..... What I didn't say was I built the motor four years ago, and even though it made 950hp it ran like crap. I've tried every thing I know to fix it over the last four years with no success. Finally with suggestions from some pretty smart guys, I sent my carbs to John at c&j and it now it runs great. Now I've got to get it to ride right.
