Anyone running a droop on a 21' open bow? I know they are not performance boats by any means, but just woundering if the droop would help it out of the hole alittle better.
The speedo read 52mph with 6 people in it, but the speedo's on boats are hardly accurate. I would say the speed was probably closer in the 40-45mph range.What does it run now thinking of putting a droop on my 21 ultra xt open bow
Is this Jasons old boat if it is I thought he was getting close to 70mph in that thing.i have a droop on my 21 shockwave it is running a 502 with inducer and ride plate and an A impeller bought it that way seems to come right on plane but i think it causes the bucket to drag in the water and makes it a very stiff steering wheel that only frees up above 40 MPH if you put one on let me know if it affects your steering boat rides well starts to bounce if diverter is up to high i think it rides dry at speed this pic it's running over 50http://www.performanceboats.com/images/attach/jpg.gif boat tops out at 62 on GPS
Yes it is his old boat i lost some MPH when i put baffles in the exhaust that knocked it down a bit and he did say he had it up to 68 MPH with just him in the boat and i clock it with my Garmin out of my truck and i had my wife, ezup ,chairs, cooler and some other required river gear the only other changes i have made to the boat are chrome,powder coat and some stainless steel to replace the aluminum diamond plate and polished aluminumIs this Jasons old boat if it is I thought he was getting close to 70mph in that thing.
Whats kinda performance are you getting with your cobra and how much Hp? 5mph is alot for a 21' cruzier .02 Cobra 21' open bow, probably heavier then most, after 2 years of owning it I put a droop snoot on it and it made a world of differance, not only did I gain (i say ) 5mph just the handleing of the boat and the ride was so much better, I would recommend everybody with a 21' put a droop on with a hydralic place diverter...As to your question of helping it get out of the hole, probably not..just my $0.02 thou..
