thanks for the info - just got drill and tap, hoping 5 degree nozzle helps xlt
scittb - as far as mods so far they are minmal . I have solas prop 11/14, rd intake grate just ordered from Carl, pump plug kit, looking for rd modded plate.was planning on BB or other over winter.
Talked with Carl at Island in regards to go faster on this ski and he says better off with more motor (1200) for my goals. If I could come up with it, maybe a supercharged doo motor would be a fun winter project. Hydrotoys gpr/with 4 stroke would be a one to copy in an xl hull
Anybody tried this yet?

Carl is correct don't go nut because with all of the mods you see listed on my reply I ma just starting to see 60 numbers at the end of the tunnel. What you have so far may see 60 on the dream 0 meter but thats about it.
The 5 degree made a tremendous difference in the handling of my boat so definitly that mod works!

I saw a 1 mph gain by putting the 5 deg nozzle on my XLT1200, went from 62.4 on GPS to 63.4 with hotter air and water temps, so may yeild more mph in cooler weather. It also started to bounce a little, but it is tolerable. I have R&D plate/grate, 12/18 prop, D plate, PV clips and GPR nozzle. Looking to put some Proks on this winter.
