    Default flat keel tunnel hardware set-ups????

    got the nordic in this mornin and of course i checked the hardware right away. the loader ramps are 1.62 below keel, and the lower steering nozzle pin is 5inches above ride plate got a droop with the nordic, and i can tell it needs that right away. i've got a nicer loader than what this boat came with, but i'm not totally sure where a good safe starting point would be at depth on it. i assume with a flat keel, the loader is gonna need to be below keel, but not near what it has now. looks as if there was alot of mph left on the table.

    anybody have a starting point for loader/shoe/rideplate/nozzle angles on these flat keeled tunnels? a bottom is out, for now anyways, gotta decide if this boat is what i want or if i need to move it down the road, go ahead and snag up the lil earl smith(the lil cheyenne type 1 ) i know of kinda local, actually i've scoped out 2

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    thanx tom! when i say flat keel, i mean flatttt ------- never seen a keel like it. if i decide to keep it, i'll have to send it to ervin capps over the winter for a new bottom and repair some gel damage it has.


    i'll run home at lunch and see wtf i need as far as steering goes. i know i'll need a extension, not sure if i can just replaced the steering cable or if its gonna need the whole helm.

    Default shoe setting

    We had a flat keel 19' daytonna that shut down like Shit. Jack at MPD took the old shoe[over an 1" thick and made us a new one approx 1/2" thick. He said on a flat keel boat your starting edge for the shoe should be about where it would be if you had a rounded keel. [Or about 1/2" below keel]. Boat handled and stopped way better on shutdown.
