    Default Type of shoe

    I have an 18' Rogers jet and I am wondering what would be the best shoe to run on it. Flat, Tapered, or Backcut.

    If you have a rogers and don't mind sharing what works for you I would appreciate it.

    Thanks

    I had an 18' Rogers Bonneville not set back, with a flat shoe, 13" mouth opening, the shoe depth was a 1/4" in the hole. full open center loader
    the boat ran alright for the minimal power that I had.
    Dont know what the nozzle was @ (Place diverter) but the plate was @ 4 deg.
    Fun boat to drive!

    That depends on the HP, pump ,nozzle location and the weight of the boat/driver.

    From the loader pad to the center of the shoe.

    I guess that would depend on how the machine work was done on your intake and how it was set in the boat. I would consider a flat shoe to be one that when installed the bottom of the shoe is on the same plane as the keel of the boat. This seems hard to explain but if you took a digital level and put it on the bottom of the boat it would read the same as what a flat shoe would read.

    This is what I consider a flat shoe to be, but there may be different opinions or definitions for a flat shoe. Just my $0.02.

    I've been told that the Rogers like a back cut and will help free it up. Got to do it to mine soon.

    a flat shoe is a flat shoe - same thickness at the front and back. a tapered shoe is thicker at the front than the back (angled down toward the front), backcut is opposite, angled down toward the back.

    That means it is flat sitting on you work bench but may not be flat in the boat in relation to the keel.The surface the shoe bolts to may not be on the same angle as a intake in another boat.So it is hard to say flat,tapered or back cut until you know where the mounting surface is.

    Just to clarify a bit; The shoe itself is either a tappered, a flat or a back cut shoe. The way the intake is cut or the angle at which it is mounted in the boat may give a different end result when installed. An easy way to find out what the end result of what you may have is to put a ditital level, (or whatever kind you may have), on the keel of the boat. Raise or lower the trailer jack until the level reads 0 degrees. Then put the level on the shoe and see what it reads. This will tell you the end result.
