    Default Shoe and Ride Plate

    What are everyone thoughts regarding adding a shoe and ride plate to your boat? I am experiencing s alot of porpoising on the very top end and need to remedy the problem. At first I couldn't keep the pump loaded but after trying several different loaders and droops i seem to have that under control. Now I am thinking about adding one of those bolt on kits. Are they a good idea and do they work? I 'm not a candidate for pulling the intake and having it machined at this time. Where is the best place to order this kit? Thanks in advance for any help you guys offer! Grant

    In my opinion the best way to add a shoe and ride plate is to remove the intake and have it machined to accommodate but if that's not an option, Place Diverter offers a "bolt on" style ride plate that is connected to a droop snoot.

    I have no experience with the bolt on style but I have seen plenty of guys use them.

    I added the bolt on from HTP...make sure which cradle you need. (ARS marine sells it to) Helped out big time in wot. Easy to install. I made a new plate though to reach the end of my aggressor bowl with cradle(bout 1.5" longer). Added side supports to plate as well an its set at 3* up from keel. I used six10 marine epoxy to smooth out shoe to intake an had to shave off the small V between trans/intake for plate to fit.

    I used the same set up on my Bahner way back in 2003 or 2005, cant remember but i do remember it helped out ALOT, i believe its a way better option then the Droop-ride plate deal PD sells.
    Just my o2.

    Basic, just set it up in position, make your pilot holes for the shoe then tap them into the intake, then bolt on shoe, ride plate and cradle to the pump which will also need to be drilled and tapped into the bowl.
