Luv the plate !!! got 1.5 -2mph, I had one with skegs and one without. The plate without the skegs is on the ski, this one was on my shelf since last year......
Jims plate on anything is the way to go !!!!!

Considering Jim's cut on the plate, what did you do about the way it "rocked" when you mocked it up? In other words, with his cut, it makes the rear of the plate mount closer to the hull ---> this makes the front edge point down lower away from the hull.....and when you push on the front and rear ends, it rocks - with the center portion acting as the pivot point.
Did you notice this? and what did you do about it when you mounted these plates?

If you have a plate from Jim on your ski, like me and all others we se gains from 1.5 - 2+ mph. I have had no handling issues and I have both plates from Jim one with skegs and one without. The one im selling is the one with the skegs and on my ski that plate made my ski turn on a dime !!! I chose the one without skegs just so my ski would glide on hard turns instead of the snap....if you know what I mean

with the plate installed properly it should not move at all......... the sealant and bolts make it firm to the bottom of the hull

Mocked it up....as in, before you actually bolt/mount/seal it up for good.
