    Modifying the intake. Changing the location of the loader mounting pad of the Aggressor intake.

    Nice paint! Not to many graphic jobs look good standing on
    their ear

    Rounded keel? I read someplace that wasn't the hot tip? just askin..for sure i don't know......

    I am a bit confused...a forklift, 3 people..and mattress just to flip it over? I did mine like this...the first time.

    Took a lot of lumber and i needed some for another project so i removed ever piece that didn't look like a hydro roller over holder and i ended up with thisClick image for larger version.

    Wrap a couple bath towels around the end of the sponsons and slide the holder on..that rod is not the one i use...It hooks to the bow eye and a pair of vice grips to keep the bracket from sliding forward and the stern isn't much more than 3/4 thick motorcycle axle stuck through the drain hole and clamped on the blast plate. The back hangs off the roof trusses and the bow hangs on a free standing pedestal made with 4x4's..it will hang with just pulling the motor..tanks and casale can stay in...no cracks..yet although i did lay in 2 layers of cloth in all the corners because they do tend to crack in a few places.

    Our friendly neighborhood rocket scientist Mr. Bennett came by to tweak the bottom of my boat. Its comming out good and looks to be a step in the right direction.

    Mike - What is the objective with doing this jet work? Straightening out the water flow into the intake? See you in a few weeks at Elsinore!

    I know the Aggressor intake is a bit concaved where the loader sits. Is the fix involve a tapered spacer, epoxied in place, followed by new radius contour build up of the intake?

    That keel appears to be a little larger-deeper than what I think I have usually seen on one of Bennetts bottoms, appears to be simular to the keel from Ervan at pheonix. Trying to load a little harder ? Heres Ervans keel
