    Would like some input on truing of hull

    I have been reading different things about truing the bottom of hull, was wanting some thoughts from others about the pros vs. cons of doing this. I have 2006 RXP that I do bouy race and was wanting to know if it would be of any benefit to do on this ski. As I have read where people say alot to be gained by doing and others that say that there is nothing to be gained by doing. Can any one shed any light on this for me please? Thanks

    Truing is more for cruising and top end speed, beneficial for flat water.......If you are doing bouy's, I would concentrate on ride plate and sponson setup. You need to grip the water, not slip through the water...

    Truing a hull can make big diferences for bouy raing because it gives you the ablilty to take the hook out of the hull as well as sharpen the strakes for better turning....

    It makes a big difference, as stated above,
    every hull is different just be sure that you dont take off to much of the wrong area, when doing so, its easy to do on some hulls.

    Trued my intake grate with my rideplate and filled in ride plate holes. Top speed increased by 1 mph. However it has less hook up in chop. Might go buy another stock grate and leave it alone to get the grip back. Going to try and rough up the rideplate with some sandpaper and see what happens.

    Was the back of the grate originally hanging lower than the ride plate where they meet?
