    gp 1300 ride plate angle

    Howdy , I am after some input for my ride plate angle for riding in the ocean . If possible the measurement at the end of the plate compared the hull . ( not good with degrees ). The ride plate is a riva and i have riva tabs aswell , currently my riva tabs are shimmed to run true to the hull. Thanks

    so whats really the point? i just installed my riva plate and i didnt do any measuring.. just used 5200 and bolted it in.

    could an angle give you more speed or handling?

    Adding plate angle gets hull out of water= faster
    Need to grind pump down to accommodate shims under plate
