    Default nozzle mod for reverse

    Since I put a rideplate on, reverse is completely useless. Is there anything I can do to the nozzle to get reverse to function? I didn't even think about it until I had to use it, and it wasn't there. basically the nozzle directs water straight into the cradle and it just makes a big splash behind the boat. would cutting the reverse chute at an angle help?
    ignore the hardware, this was taken during mockup.

    cut it like this?

    Cut the plate a few inches back to the mount. It's to long

    i believe this was taken before i sheared the plate back. it was at 20", i cut it down to 18"
    "edit" i know it was before i cut it, looking at the edge of the plate, i smoothed it after i cut it.

    Kevin A droop will put you "down ,out further and back" , not sure you'll gain alot by trimming the reverse chute on the stock nozzle

    I think it would be smarter to get trim for my cruising porpoise before a droop. the winter rebuild went way over budget, and schools out so I'm unemployed. Both a droop and trim will have to wait.

    Well you're ahead of the game as, most boaters go broke.
    Seriously, just take off the RP unless you beg hard enough for someone to give you free parts.

    I don't see how that would be good, I'm not going to be the test pilot to try running a boat with a shoe, without a rideplate. Don't need to beg for parts, just have to wait until next season
