    RXT (non S3) High Speed Handling Issues

    I've been having issues past about 74mph+ where even 1/2ft waves basically detach the hull from the water and buck me from side to side. I was wondering if there are adjustable trim tabs somewhere that can extend above the through hull exhaust tip and stop some of the bucking. Maybe there's something else I'm not thinking about? I see 2 seat Yamis running 70 a lot smoother than I do

    factory sponsons and factory grate. I did have the Riva until it snapped and tried the aquavein. Wasn't impressed with it removing some top speed. Maybe it's just how it is with the non s3 RXT. I'd still like to see what some tabs hanging off the back do.

    Ok, you fixed it. Add a Worx grate for better hook up. The R&D is faster but slightly less hook up than the Worx.
