I have 460 making just over 500hp, 21 ft sleek, berk jc, hits almost 70mph. Looking for more speed for next summer. Adding place diverter this winter and thinking about loader. Just confused about which is best for my application. Any input??
also interested as I have the same boat and a little more power, this winter she is getting a SS impeller with a A-B cut so I can get in the power band of the motor 5600-5800rpm and only have the open grate for now
Kinda worried too about the loss of a trash barrier. Lots of crap in our rivers up here. So going to a loader I lose that protection??
I keep my stock Berk rock grate in my truck...if after a storm my river may show a lot of debris. At the ramp I'll switch out my open loader or just go home.
Because, all it takes is one beefy, walnut size chunk of wood (stuck in your bowl vein) to ruin a day on the water.
