    rounded

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

    are there any "tricks" to help out the delta pad bottoms??

    also, does any one know of any shops/people that will blueprint the bottom of my boat in washington state??

    and can a delta pad bottom be converted to a round keel with a spoon very easily and "cheap"? and is it worth it for the average lake boat that wants to run 80+

    sorry for the hijack

    Would it really just depend on the set up? I would think each would take a different approach to tuning.

    i'm no jetboat guru, but i've owned a few of both and like most jetboaters, i was alil arrogant when i bought my current boat thinking i knew how to overcome the flatkeel under my tunnel. well we all know what assume stands for i've got a good buddy with a delta bottom eliminator vhull type boat with a healthy 533bff in it and it'll clip off 85+ without a loader under it(he lost it and just realized it was gone, and yes hass, i mean lance), my nordic i beginning to cavitate at 85 cause i'm having hell balance'n the boat between using the hp available and running as much hardware as i can get away with without pulling down rpms or pitching me if i had rounded bottom boat(with the basic berk pump 12jg/jc set-up) i wouldn't be in such a fight between keeping the pump loading/keep gaining mph/ and staying in it till alil later in the mph department i feel having ran and built a few fast vhulls. given, this is my 1st 19ft tunnel, but really how fast can you go with a concave keel

    this convo is making me wanna go outside and flip out my nordic tom, you know i can hull it down in an hr, round my keel, billy's got a round keel intake
