Got my best speed yet but also have issues
I ran 70.1 today superman in 6" chop thanks to a tip from fernando and a tip from richard(WFO).
My issues are that my RPM's were 7360 and i couldn't get the ski to stop bouncing. My two questions are;
What do i need to do to bring my rpm's down, a 14/20?
Are a set of R&D trim tabs goin to solve the bouncing issue?

If your sponsons are like the older GPR's step them first. A 14/20 Dynafly would be a good starting point for an impeller. You can get it pitched from there.
Get the R&D trim tabs later if you need them. When you decide to go all out get ahold of Fercho for the package and Carl at Island for the parts.

sorry, forgot to post this, he are all of my mods.
Riva Intake Grate
Stock Sponsons Stepped
Holes in hood and bucket
I have also spoken to fernando about the package. I plan to buy the package just after the new year. It is on of my winter projects.

congrats Alex...I cant believe it is porposing with the sponsons stepped!
Looks like it time for some trim tabs, you will need them if you go with the package.
What were the temps when you turned 7360?

I'd look at your setup a little closer. Is your trim nozzle parallel to the 5deg nozzle while at neutral? Any parts hanging down underneath? Straightedge that rideplate yet?
Also, if you were riding in rough water, and are coming from a three seater background, the gpr will be bouncy...until you come up with a package.

Forget the trim tabs - use your stockers.
Step your stock sponsons, and check the angle of your steering nozzle in the neutral position using the depth finder on a caliper. May need to also put a thin shim at the rear mounting points of your ride plate if none of the other stuff works.

try a thinner washer in the front of the ride plate first

Also, i noticed when i was flushing the ski that the pisser on the right side did not have any water flowing out of it. It was flowing just fine when i was riding though. What do you guys think?
