    Custom Tabs

    Finally got one fine tuned and mounted.Whadda ya think? The one on the right is an untuned prototype for comparison.The one on the left has washers under the front,and the back half is ground down so the angle matches the ride plate.

    Interesting. I never would have thought to trim them down that way. Who knows, it could work. Let us know what happens.

    Cool, I've thought of doing this myself, but have the other half closer to the rideplate instead.

    I tried that & lost 1.3.I was running out of daylight,the pictures dont really do it justice.I might try shooting some more later when I get the holes filled.Its shorter in the rear than it looks,and the front is only about 1/8 above the hull.

    Sorta. Before I angled them to match the ride plate,I could feel a difference begining at about 56-60.The ski felt like it had powersteering,and very responsive to the slightest input.They were scrubing just a little speed,1.3 or so.I decided to angle them the same as the rideplate,to fill the gap betweem the tab & hull and to minimize the step there also to get the speed back.Its been too windy to test,I will post the results as soon as I can test.

    P.S. Did anyone notice the angle of the stock rideplate,or how close it is to the pump?
