    Start with the outer plates @ 1* up and the ride plate @ 3.5* up. Safe starting spot. see where the boat rides. What kind of shoe and where is it in relation to the keel?

    Default swnd ride plates

    My outer plates read 0 deg. inner side reads 3.5 deg neg at inner.Center ride plate ride plate 3.0 deg pos. motor is 5 inches from block not valve cover to rear transom. dont know why previous owner set angle of plates at different degrees as to inner sides? Im confused as what I heard from these adjustments? Should they be level even all the way across. This boat has only seen 90,s in it with me and (Precious cargo before shutdown) (a twin bro). 18 to 20 inches of freeboard! boat at this speed felt stable? unsure of top speed as gps will be in order for elsinore if I have the peanuts to run all out!also can someone tell me about my shoe configuration? Guys thanks in advance!

    Set the air plates even all the way across. The shoe looks to be a tappered shoe. Kinda hard to really see whats going on.

    is this one of those shoe rideplate combo deals?
    you know like from the early 70's when they used the rideplate as the shoe then added a spacer to lower it???

    As Futs states... set the air plates at zero all the way across. Youre simply extending the hull, not correcting anything.

    As far as the ride plate, it varies... mine likes 4 degrees up for all out speed, but its very loose. So normally I run the ride plate at 2.5 degrees up to make it 'lakeable'. Then I can simply remove a shim from under the ride plate cradle and be back to 4 up.

    With the plates, and pod (extended pump), youre just making the boat think its longer than it actually is. Basically a extreme set back pump, and the plates make the hull think its longer as well.

    2 degree back cut shoe worked best on mine, cant tell what yours is though.

    we need an aged opinion, where is Shoemaker??

    yeah that what I was talking about, the rideplate has the cutting edge.
    and the spacer sets the depth.
