    Took the better part of a day but they turned out pretty great! Used Starboard and went to town with a jig saw and a belt sander. Went out and rode it this afternoon, Hooks like a MFer, it's ridable but I am going to have to get some footholds. Scrubbed about 2 mph with the trim tabs and ended up pulling them off, but definitely a viable option for a rough water race though. Could some one compare them to after market? They stick down 2.25 inches below the backing plate, that's flush with the bottom corner of the hull, and the blade length is 15.5" And How hard are you guys hooking? I'm a fairly experince rider and this felt like I was riding a old RXP-X with a good set of sponsons. Except I was only doing 50 instead of 70.... same lateral g-force it felt like though.

    Nice work! I have always built my own. Typically on X4 hulls and IJSBA legal is 1.5 depth max. Beyond that starts to stuff the nose hard. Trims look long!

    Trims as in trim tabs...They look like they stick out about 3 to 4 inches beyond the back of the hull. You might try something shorter to find a better balance between speed and stability.
