One more try before Mudbug III
I am going to have to squeeze in another test session before Mudbug. My plans are that I am going to leave the same amount of shims in the front of the rideplate, but shim the back down in small increments. Duke gave me a great tip about using motor mount shims, they come in very small increments & I have a ton of them. I think if I can rid of the hull issue, I will go faster than 69. Of course getting rid of this problem can also cost me speed if it takes alot of shims to get rid of it. Once again I am not satisfied.......

That is not very practical.

it is for testing. if your rpm's go up with the seat off, you know that you have room for airflow improvements. ask you GPR bud's. you could even install a bilge blower. hell, that's what I'm doing.

My front & rear bucket will be out of the ski for the radar runs. The air is so thick & hot down there in the swamp. I have never been so hot in my life.
