    Yeah I'll keep it forever, been in the family since brand new in '77

    I also don't plan to do anything with the bottom either, really its just a family boat that looks sorta cool, I konw it'll never be fast. Figured a droop or something similar is an easy bolt-on upgrade that might help a bit.

    Dont mess with the bottom!!!!! You are opening a can of worms buddy. Find a set uf saddle tanks and loose the bow tank! That is holding you waaay back. You can try a droop BUT every boat(v bottom) I did a droop on, it planted the azz down. You could try a snoot from HTP and a few wedges.

    Need like a yard rule or a stright piece of something about 3-5' long! Get under boat and go from transom towards front in a stright line and see if you can see light between bottom of boat and stright edge. Some will be in most older boats but not a whole lot! Check this first just so you know. Hook causes a kind of suction and will hold the boat down!
    And some boats that are vbottom are a heavy layup and it is hard to lift anyway.

    Getting more stern lift

    My boat plows, would a droop help get the tail out of the water? Right now with the diverter handle about 2-3 clicks down from teh top the boat feels the best, but is still riding really wet.
