So whats the real deal with droop snoots? On one (parts supplier) website, they claim the droop helps raise the back of the boat out of the water, increasing speed. On another (racers/parts) website, they claim the droop helps push down on the back of the boat.
Which way is it really? They both cant be right, as they are totally 180 off from one and another.
I am having problems getting the bow of my boat up at full speed, ran an easy 78 pushing tons of water, the spray from the side of the boat was in front of me. This was with the diverter all the way up. I know this was not very efficiant like this. I added four more degrees of wedge between the bowl and the droop, will test it later today.
If the droop is really pushing down on the back, it in turn would want to raise the front, and I should keep it on. If it raises the back, it would want to drive the front down, and I think I should remove it.
So.... whos right?
