    Not sure why you want those.... but I would pm "Jim's Performance" about them.

    Well...I can think of one reason he may want them.

    They work.

    Yep, got one of Jim's closed loop skegged plates for my PX in storage. Removed it for the Riva OL plate now on my machine. Loved the plate but changed it out to get more nose lift from the Riva. Really tracked well. Jim's work is exceptional for welded skeggs, hated to take it out of the picture frame and down off the wall to install and run it.

    more nose lift? i fight with my ski to keep the nose down... i would not need anymore lift than what i have.. others say only my blockoffs are in the water.. i ride so high with this plate it starts walking and rocking back and forth.. only way for me to lay it down is to trim down to middle and lay on the bars..... but the skeggs do work!!!

    What plate? Impossible to ride with only the blockoffs in the water, you would be unhooked. Night and day difference between the two plates I mentioned. There is a difference in nose lift created by ride plate angle and pump nozzle angle. Stop and think for a second where the pivot point between the two are. I can trim up with either plate to cause the pump to come unhooked. With the OL Riva plate I can get the ski to angle higher in the front due to the angle cut under the plate and still stay hooked.

    i basically become unhooked i can only ride high when on glass water... i have one of jims first plates with skeggs... before he use to stamp them... wish it didnt do this but i dont want to shim the plate down and loose mph... i like how loose it is and it tracks high and straight but i can used it to its full potential when its rough out
