    Thanks for that. Did you sand the under side or the side that you see?

    Do you grind the side that sits on the hull or the side that you see when it's bolted up

    I used a hand file on the underside to make it sit flush with the ride plate and an equal amount up front. Mine still pulls to right above above 70 mph.

    There are a lot more comments about this in this thread: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=173742

    Thanks for the info. So is there a point of sanding it flush if it still pulls to the right
