New Results.... proof truing your blockoffs and rideplate to the hull works!
So today h2jim and myself were messing with my ski. Installed RE blockoffs and an 81mm ring and pitched prop accordingly to 8150 rpm
Id just like to share my results with others and say that using nothing or silicone to fill voids and gaps between rideplate and hull and blockoffs DOES SCRUB SPEED!
I adjusted my RE's flush with the hull and pitched the prop and went to the river with Jim. I had nothing between my blockoffs just installed. I ran with 3 bars of fuel back to back 75.1-75.2 at 8150 rpm with the 81mm ring.
Later that night i went back to the cottage and nicely matched my blockoffs and rideplate with the hull flush NOT using silicone this time but JB waterweld. Sanded the rideplate holes from 220grit up to 1500 then 1500grit saned the whole plate. I made it all nice and smooth then let it dry and sanded access off and smoothend the area out. Now my blockoffs sit flush with the hull like its factory.
Im please to annouce i have it a new record in this summer heat and PROVEs that filling gaps and paying attention to anything that may grab or cause drag is a must!
New results were 77.2 mph with 4 bars of fuel in the augest humidity we have in ontario now. I did back to back 76.8-77.0 then 77.2mph at 8150 rpm. Im very pleased with my results and thanks to h2Jim and IRONHEAD for helping me make this ski faster every week 1/10th at a time. Now im pretty sure the fall will be promising for me to tickle close to 80 with this ski. h2jim saw me.. it ride high and dry .. This jims plate is a must. those skeggs keep me straight because i feel the arse end of the ski rock back and forth and slip around and those skegs are the only things keeping it straight!

4-5 hrs is not to bad but double that for me since im not a body repair guy like some people. if i were you i would run it for a bit and be happy with it for a while before you go out and spend another 2 grand on it. do you think your getting deflection from your pump and what were your running for afr?
