    best grate for FX140????

    OK, heres the story
    this is on the 4tec YAM-DOO SUV conversion boat.
    We put a fx140 shoe and grate in there.

    I need something to help it from possible porpussing..

    Is there a aftermarket grate that would work better??

    the stock fx grate is like 4 bars and they actually(the bars) hang below the hull line.
    Is there a aftermarket SPEED grate that would work better??
    I don't want a scoop that scubs speed but rather a less resistant grate that sits flush to the shoe..
    Hello Daniel, I think all the after market grates are scoops for the FX i like using the R&D

    Hello Daniel, I might be wrong but i don't think a grate will help with porpoising. Being that hull does not have trim tabs i think the only thing that will help is after market sponsons all the way down or shim the rear of the plate.
