    Rough water hookup

    I have a 94 SL750 which does well on flat water but can't hookup in rough water. Any suggestions?

    Go with a R&D Intake Grate. And a Ocean Pro Ride Plate.

    Where can I get these 2 items? I checked on ebay and couldn't find them. Is that something ill need to go to the dealer for and get ripped off?

    You really want the three inch longer than normal Ocean pro ride plate! but check with ken for availability because he has been listing ride plates that he can't sell u for 5 frickin months! so contact him before closing the deal! I had to buy a used one after one to many empty delivery dates from Ken! yup it's a dis! Z

    In a nut shell the ride plate is the only thing that should touch the water at high speed. Concave ride plate = Bow High. Convex Ride Plate= Bow Low. There is a sweet spot on every ride.

    It is a good combo to run. I have a 94 SL 650 with this set up and it's much improved, however, the hull design isn't great for rough waters. You will get improvement, just don't expect alot. You can get a discount for the R&D intake grate from Atlantic if you tell Jay you're a member of Greenhulk. For the OP ride plate you'll need to go to Ebay as stated before or look for a used one through classifieds. You can even post a wanted to buy and see what comes to you. They do sell 2 different sizes, and the longest one is best for rough water, but very hard to get like Z said.
