    WOW!!! Those skegs look familiar. Maybe Jim could offer the same deal for his plates with the grate. I was actually thinking one step further and welding the plate and grate togehter. grind everthing smooth and you would not have the gap or bolt holes as they could all be welded and ground smooth. Should be easy enough to do on one of jims open loop plates. Any reason that would not work?

    I thought about that...but you would have a hard time putting it on the ski, because of that front bolt on the intake grate...but yeah it can be done...I'm sure.

    A one piece design would proably net a speed increase and guarantee the grate wasn't coming off without taking the entire ride plate with it. Probably could re-engineer the front bolts as they wont be as important to hold the grate on, just keep the front of the grate snug with the hull.

    And possibly slot the holes to account for hull differences.

    Which holes James? All of them. The most critical areas IMO are the transition from hull to front of ride plate and grate to ride plate. The other areas at top speed are out of the water (or should be).
