    2mph gain so far, but it's been windy/choppy out on the water for over a week now. No more bowhunting at speed and handles much better. Picked up a problem porpoising at 75+ though. Planning on installing a set of RE blocks eventually.

    Was this from a stock plate to Rivas? Or from a Jims or Speedfreek closed loop plate to the new rivas?

    I ask, because i saw 2 MPH with my Closed loo Speedfreek plate.

    Sorry to mislead Water4fire. I probably should have kept .
    It was from stock. Keep in mind I mentioned so far, given conditions I was running in. I'm haven't run the plate to its potential. I picked up a porpoising problem after installing the plate. As soon as I install some block-offs. Hopefully I'll able to report back a real gain. So my 2 mph increase was on the seat trying to keep the front from porpoising heading into the wind because it seemed to porpoise less with a head wind.
