    Yep the pad is long. flat and wide. The intake is a bit high and no spoon. Get a spoon built and glued on (for testing). Once you get the pump loaded you can open the nozzel some. If you like the tight steering feel you will still like the 2 7/8 nozzel insert you are running.

    Canuck Going good and you?

    Try Me......Is that a slight dent in front of the intake? Damm that pad is wide....

    And look what just crawled out of the dark......Hows it goin Brian?

    the bottom is a flat pad about 8" wide at the front tapering to about 16" or so at the back

    The keel should be 1/2" alum. Talk to James at Eagle, he might have some pics. I made mine out of bondo then had the shape copied in steel and then tuned with more bondo.....at 6600 it would cav

    canuck - what do you mean by work on a spoon? i have a 20 gallon fuel tank thats mounted to the floor between the stringers running from the front of engine and stopping at the front seats. theres no good way to move it any further up.
    Spoon is used in place of a loader that most of these guys run, it is a bubble in front of the intake.
    Don't need to move the tank I was looking for what set up the boat had as for balance.
    270 or 276 works real well, use better heads and gear it up to turn 5200 before the bottle, cfm laid it out for you
    Steel or alum keel?
    You pics show it set well but if you want faster you will lose the handle, if you want it to handle you will lose top end, if you want both you need huge power or a different bottom.
    I had the same hull, had the same problems, put a nice little 383 in it and enjoy

    Can't you change the keels on the aluminum boats? Thought they bolted on or something, on the tin can boats.

    you mentioned you want to get the boat up on top of the water more than once... You dont have a whole lot of options hardware wise from what Im gathering, how about building some lift into the bottom of the boat? Lots of ways to do that, need pics to give ideas. Maybe try a rounded keel or spoon rather the delta, might kill 2 birds with one stone meaning get more water to the pump and get some more lift.

    Thats very little horsepower, 5400 RPM on a C cut is not getting much done at all, you need more power.

    If you plan on stepping up to a big block Id do that first then work on the setup, if you get it loose with that little motor its going to be really loose with more HP.
