    Does not look blocked.... more like an additional ramp, aimed lower.

    Really? So what exactlly is a blocker then? Doesnt it block the center portion inbetween the stingers? I know what your looking at, but that still will be considered a blocker even if it is ramped different would'nt it?

    Heres a pic of one of my loaders with 6" of blocker.

    Looks like a good thread to throw this into:

    This loader is described as being "a Berkeley style top loader grate, a bit aggressive."

    What kind of application would it be good for? High HP, low HP, heavy boat, light boat, etc..... Or is loader performance even something that can be related to that way, with an off the shelf description based on a pic?

    I am just trying to help on this!!! Without knowing the horse-power and pump work done, I will tell you that the ramp speed on the bottom to the grate is way to fast. As it is set on the photos I would almost bet that the boat will fight to get on top and the loader will make the boat either porpoise or dive into the nose, Again H/P and pump! That is a Southwind bottom splash and I have played with them alot. What is very important to that bottom design is in the loading to the bottom and that starts way before the intake grate! Lots of guys on this site will use different terminalogy for keel, chimes and hook! Not my problem. What I recommend is to lay at the transom of the boat and study the bottom. Then add in how you want the boat to ride. I have had three Southwinds (2 18ft v,s and one 19ft TD and never been happier with a hull. The last one was a 1976 18 ft v and ran over the 80mph mark with a very mild 429 ford. I also set the pump back 3 inches to assist in ride and attitude of the boat. M

    Kenny that is the same loader i have and it works good. I didnt lose any rpm when i added the one i have now. Im sure your boat will accept it and work good.

    Just the the fish a favor and dont spray it with the same flake as the boat. I dont think they can handle much more

    Looks like a GTH cast aluminum, low aiming loader from the era of 40 mph running starts at the line. With today's hammer-it-from-the-rope style a serious launch controller might be necessary (are those legal?)

    My understanding of a blocker is, that it starts from the front and goes "X" inches back. The front on this one appears to be open, thats all. The loaders I have are like these (courtesy of MPD) I have an open, a V-blocker, and a partial blocker.
