i run a 2004 Cobra V hull with a 454 and setback Dominator pump. The boat runs well and dry at higher speeds but seems to throw a lot of splash off of the pump at lower speeds (below 3200 rpm) even though the boat is well on step. i was wondering if there is any rule of thumb about where the nozzle needs to be in relationship to the keel line on a v bottom for a good starting point? i have several different snoots i can try to move the nozzle up or down in relationship to the water when running.
i'm running a shoed intake but no ride plate at the moment
What Cobra mold do you have, the 185 sidewinder model?? If so I have the same exact hull (2000 ultra) with setback dominator and run 2* back cut shoe with rideplate and droop and it is pretty dialed in.
