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
