    Default Any Nordic Bubbledeck owners out there??

    I recently picked up a '78 Nordic Bubbledeck 18ft. A 496 BBC is going in there. Split-bowl Berk pump with droop, and shoe/ride plate. I have seen a few old posts about the hull being solid with the ability to handle some chop. I guess the downside of this hull is the porpoising. Have any owners out there have a legit solution for the porpoising issue. I read one post stating to use a 4 degree wedge. Is this true?? Thank you in advance for the help!!

    I had a 78. I used a droop snoot, diverter and set back the pump. Highest speed I saw was 75ish and never had any porpoise issues. I remember reading that over 80 is when guys had the problem.

    I seen 82 this past weekend with no issues. But at 30-40mph it's porpoising.
