    It will probably hunt, side to side at high speeds.

    The intake will load really hard with no fins, be careful

    He can always fashon up some smaller fins on the shoe....

    Grind the old fins down smooth and get a finned ride plate, or a custom shoe....And don't try to out turn someone...


    Another "White guy" fix would be a turning fin before the intake (like 4-5' without seeing your boat)..

    We have broken, or should I say worn them off before without noticeing...Interesting numbers....

    Did you do the runs on the same day? Air will help or hurt you, as will water conditions.

    HMMM no fins get dicey over 70, be careful. If the intake has not been out in recent history, may consider removing it for repair, then resetting the intake.
