18 cp tunnel ride

7387 Views 21 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  slowboy
I have been trying to tune my 18 cp tunnel. It seems that no matter what I do, the nose rides real low all the time. How does everybody set these up? How high should the nose be riding at speed? I am scared of having this boat hook while going fast.

Any help is appreciated.

With the limited experience I had in my old 18 tunnel (the one Russo is restoring) it seemed to run fairly flat. It didn't carry the nose anywhere near what a gullwing does. I think set up is extremely important on these hulls not only for performance but to keep you from getting wet. If I were you I would seek out a few board members that have these boats and get a good baseline to go from. I don't remember what we had in our deal back then but it might even be worth giving Scotten a call. Just my .02 RD
