    Stage 1, pops out of the water?

    Hey guys, Im no mech, I have a Stage one 07, Ride plate,Pump seal, Dplate, Solas, Grate, all pitched and balanced, Had it all done at once, What would make it bounce in and out of the water even on Flat water? I used the trim in every which way, Nose all the way down still pops out and wont let it plane out as you say I think... Any suggestions?

    Dice,i dont have any pics, but youre going to cut out the space between the middle bolt holes on the center mounting on the sponsons so its oblonged.

    When you remount. The rear bolt will go in the high hole to lower the sponson.
    The front bolt will go in the lower hole to raise it.

    And with the oblonged hole, the center bolt just goes on the center.

    This gives you the stepped.cuts down on the bounce.

    a drill may work, i use a dremel on medium speed, takes 2 min. but if all else fails,a file works, its only plastic

    A Solas Dynafly i take it? I hope....if its an 07. Whats your pitch on the prop? Going to a 14/20 ( i assume) is way to big for your mods unless its pulled way down. This is off topic of your buck problem.Just asking.

    Just leave the middle bolt out for a quick fix,but something else is drastically off.It shouldnt bounce that bad.And butter to your pancakes Woody.
