    I think one of the Oklahoma boys had this similar shot, and I think that's what his issue was.

    Well, I only made one change since I ran the boat last and that was a new loader. I picked up some MPH and the seat of the pants feels good on the launch. I know I left some leave on the table with this blocker loader, I'll give it more shoe.....

    Tim, you just HAD to use that clip didn't you? Nothing like rubbing it in! I went through the vid frame by frame to see if mine was doing them same. Didn't seem to be. My bow drops when I run out of water with a blocker in my loader so it very well could be that. I have three different loaders if you want to give em a try. Just let me know. Then we can do it again.

    Mike, That water was smooth compared to what I normally run in. I trimmed back the eges of the loader a bit, so I think it wants more shoe. I have ran the loader many times before but never seen it or felt it nose over on the big end. I did notice it wasnt doing it on Friday or early sat morning. I think when my fuel load gets lighter and the boat carrys more is when its doing it. Im going to try and add more shoe and see what it does, if its the same, I will switch out the loader and go back to old faithfull.

    Time to get some readings on intake presure.

    You best check with 10-35 he seems to be the new self pro claimed joker of AHA.With his skills and driving you might be able to break the 81 mph barrier in no time.

    Yuma power tour would be off the hook.

    Tom buys them from Home Depot. He just cuts the handle off a shovel and screws it on. Seriously, have you seen the loader on a R intake for a blown alcohol deal? It's scary.
