home made opas blockoffs
This may seem like a dumb question but I have to ask. Why are we spending money on opas blockoffs instead of just glassing over the holes when the stock system is removed? It sure would be cheaper.

Some on here have even made there on block off extentions.
But if your going to be running 75 or higher I highly reccomend that you fill in the void once the opas is removed with RE's, riva pro block off's, or even the newer version once there out.
From my experience the ski handles like crap with the opas removed and nothing replacing the void.
YOu will bounce like crazy with that setup once you start making some big speed.

probably because if U went to sell the boat you could go back to stock?

With the mods I have now I am probably going to be around the 74 mph range. Should I leave them on? I only wanted to remove them because I thought they may be a little restrictive and cost a little speed loss.

Wait to you decide to install the New Riva open loop plate then you'll see some real porpoising. My big azz GTX bounces around more than riding a bull.

So you don't think I have any top speed loss with them on? This was my main reason for thinking of removing them in the first place.

But what about the comment that skoepp made about the handling getting bad at 75mph or over? My mods will in that speed range.
