    Gain Mph With Bedliner Spray On Trimtabs!!!

    Whats everyones thought on trying bedliner spray on trimtabs and possibly the back 3 feet of your entire hull,plate included,,i know its a rough surface but wouldnt that really allow there to be less wetted surface on the water with all of those air pockets,it should improve handling also,or maybe i just have to much time on my hands brain storming!!!!!!i dont think sanding the hull and this would give you the same affect being that it is totaly 2 different textures.and it does come in white. and yes it can be removed.

    you might try it first using the stock rideplate - stock rideplates sell for $20 on ebay

    that way if it doesn't work you can simply discard the plate

    I would think that would slow you down like "barnacles" on a boat.

    .drag.


    ....another thought would be spraying the tunnel area and build it up about 1/4" or more and reduce the volume inside of the tunnel area to help reduce overstuffing. Like the Yamaha SuperJet Pump Stuffer.

    major slow down. The bedliner spray is designed for friction wet or dry. The surface has poor lubricity. The rough texture is interesting and has been discussed. Maybe a different type of spray with a rough coating. Anybody know any pipeline engineers? What do they do to decrease drag internally in long pipelines. That should correllate.

    Anytime you obstruct water flow,your speed will go down.There have been a few guys in the past that have tried the "speed coat" with poor results.Look at it this way,when your pump shoe hangs down .020/.040 your speed drops major! Imagine coating the last 3 feet of your boat with bedliner paint. The thickness of that stuff is probably .030-.050 thick.

    So has anybody tried speedcoat on their skis and notice any difference? I used the west marine speedcoat on my ski and not sure if its helping or not as I had done other mods at the same time.
    As for the bedliner stuff, I know of one guy that tried it. After one race they looked at the bottom of their hull, half of it was missing.

    i would`nt use it myself,,, but my local auto paint supply store has a 2 part bedliner spray it has a catylist hardner,but its kinda like todays 2 part auto finishes,,you better know what your doing and use a proper mask cause if you breathe any of the vapors it can be fatal as it will harden like epoxy inside your lungs.i dont think this kind will come off.but i would hate to try it and loose mph and mess up a perfect hull at the same time.
