GH...a ? re ride plate extentions
A while back...I seen the pics of your ride plate extended on an rxp.
What do you suppose could be gained from adding 1.5" -2" to the rxt's plate...to bring it to the end of the hull or maybe a bit beyond?

My experience has shown that it scrubs speed bigtime. I started with a 2" extension and it scrubbed 2.5 mph so i cut it down to 3/4" and it only scrubbed 1 mph.
I don't recommend it for a flat water rider but for someone riding ocean chop its a must have. I ran thru our lake when it was real chopped up and the extension was amazing. The nose stayed planted and hookup was improved dramatically.

Have you ever compared your wot average speeds in chop compared to those on glass?
What little running I've done with a gps has shown as much as a 10mph difference....I'd bet I'd see more on a real bad day.
