    looks good to me, maybe the nose is a little high, hard to say, if you can get the sides dry then you are getting very close, IMO.

    there's a thread somewhere on this subject. That nose looks high for that shot. I'd want out of there but I'm getting old.

    A couple pics I've collected over the past few years.

    I am just thinking that the diverter is set a few * to high in that notch and in the lower notch it is to low! So I am planing on resetting the diverter to get a good set!

    That will work Grady!

    TN, That is a NOS pass and the ata-tude changes big time with the boat on the spray!

    Looks like your diverter is kicking up a lil to high like ya said
    and if it was closer to see a little better side and front shots

    I think 18's ride very flat (like the blue one) compared to a 19 which will carry the nose a bit more. Gene's boat (last of Sleeper's pics) is one of the best setting 19's IMO. I think he is well into the high teens with that boat....

    At least the well set up 18's run flat. (Pattymelt, Lance, Bobsniper, etc)

    I tried to find a picture of Pattymelt's ( Josh) or Zack's ..must have been looking in the wrong place. Maybe one of the race event threads ?

    and like you I think Gene's boat attitude is just about as good as it gets. I love the way that thing rides.
