    As you can see from the pics, the angle is extreme. This set up is good for glass only. If you plan on riding on a lake or around boat wakes/slop, this set up sucks, bad.

    Even in glass, once I got into the upper 68's, the hull did some things I have never felt before. The back end would drop, then lift (bow down). It would not always unhook when it did this, but, it was a strange feeling.

    The temp was 90 degrees today with perfect water. I went back out to the bayou where I hit 68.2 with two shims and no holes filled. The only difference today was I added the 1.79mm shim, and filled the holes and it was 5 degrees hotter.

    The 68.5 I reported last week was on the lake with a slight ripple and no holes filled, with the same amount of shims as today. Once I got on glass is when the hull problems started. It can be rode out, but this is keeping me from going any faster. With 5 gallons of fuel I hit 69.0 a few times. On the buzzer the buck problem got worse and 68.8-68.9 was all I could get before my a.. hole tightened up too much.

    69mph!!! Congratulations, good job! I'm thinking of trying that setup with mechanical trim tabs at 5 degrees.

    Thanks. If I had more power I could take angle out of the plate and probably hit 70. I do not see how I will hit 70 with my current motor mods. If I can find a shim that is .half of 1.79, may be I could click off a few 69.1 or 69.2's before the hull problem bites me in the nuts.

    CAUTION A word to the wise!

It would not always unhook when it did this, but, it was a strange feeling----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Use extream CAUTION please, you are about to loose control of your ski. This is the point that it pitches you off and may cause injury to your body! These hulls are not designed for that high of speed! Please be carefull!
