    Default Pic Of Boat Ride Attitude...Opinions?

    Here's a pic that was recently [email protected] Current setup: American Turbine AB impeller, White Lightning loader w/7" blocker, American Turbine split bowl, Aggressor droop w/2* down wedge. No shoe or ride plate. Let's hear some opinions on how she's riding.

    Honestly?

    It looks pretty wet. It's kinda hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like you've
    got spray coming off almost up the driver's seat (even if it's just to the back seat
    area that's still pretty wet).

    The bow attitude (angle of attack if you will) looks good. It's kinda like the whole boat
    needs to come up while still retaining that same slightly bow up attitude.

    On a good note, you're running almost 80 mph even though there's still a lot of boat
    in the water. If you can get it dried out you'll almost surely go faster.

    Hate to say it but you need the shoe/rideplate.

    Boat is running real wet, like dan said air the boat out and your going to run faster. I know my boat breaks half way between the gas caps and the transom.

    Take the winter add that shoe and rideplate and you will get the mph your looking for.

    I gained 5 mph( thanks again jetboat performance)

    Default Wet, real wet!

    I watched you this last Saturday, before I left without taking pictures, and thought for as fast as your boat goes it sure is wet.

    All the passes were the same. You're boat rides really low in the water.

    "Water Bends" aside, take out the 2* wedge and try again.

    Also we heard your pump unload often when you made your passes. Even a little hop out of the water unloaded your pump quickly and often.

    We have good winters here, you can adjust and test often.

    Looks, to me, like the water is breaking right behind the back seat.

    So basically what you're looking for is for the outside chines to come up out of the water so that it's riding on the inside strakes? How stable/unstable will it be with it riding like that?

    The ride plate will help with stability
