Modified Ride Plate
I sure hope this works! It didn't cost but a few bucks for sanding belts and paper... but it sure took a long time
Still have to weld a crack and finish it off with 400 then 1000 grit, but its coming along. Check out the trailing edge

Looks great. I love the knife edged rear edge.

Here is a couple of profile pics comparing a stock plate to the modified one. The camera was on a tripod and the straight edge was attached to the intake grate for a consistent reference point. the only thing that moved was the ride plates. You can clearly see the difference.

So it looks like the modified plate "trails off" more agressively? What is theory behind "raising" the trailing edge? Is it like trim tab?
For us guys that ride solely in the ocean can we just leave the alum ride plate naked like that? or does it need some kind of coating to protect it?
I imagine that without a coating it transfers heat better for colling the motor which is more of a lake rider problem considering the cool ocean temps here on the Pacific?
If so what coating.

Can't wait to hear the results, good or bad. Probably good.
