Filled In Rideplate Speedo Cutout
A few picks of what some spare time and beer accomplished.
I bought another R&D plate with the GK mod to try a few different things on. Last night I filled in the cutout for the speedometer wheel. The plate mounts well above the step in the hull (using no shims), so I am not sure how much, if any water is actually catching here. I do know water can't be catching here now. I am going to ty-wrap the speedo assembly to the bilge siphon hose, the hose is just a decoy now anyway. If the cutout was catching water, I should gain some speed. I know this would work on J-ME's plate because he has it shimmed down flush with the step in the hull & intake grate.

I hope it helps, it can't hurt. Do you think even with the plate mounted up above the step this causes drag?

As you probably know, the North wind is going to be nasty this weekend. I won't be doing any testing this weekend. I am not going to put this plate on until I finish the testing of the AAT cone. It will be a few weeks before I can have results on speedo fill in.

Looks good....I think that area does have drag. You might try filling in the bolt holes and drill them out to clear socket head bolts.

The plate I have on the ski now has all the holes filled. When this plate with the speedo filled in goes on, the bolt holes will also be filled. Out of the 14 bolt holes under my ski, 12 are filled. Only the front two intake grate holes are not.
