    FIVE deg. would seem logical as your formula states the nozzel's at 5, to get it in line for best power...

    I have tested several different plates over the past couple years that would all be very similar.

    The specific plate on my ski has not been tested yet.

    It is getting warmer, I'll probably be on the water in the next couple weeks.

    I'll post the angle tomorrow - I was just surprised at what it was with no shims or special milling on the bottom surface etc etc

    LOL...that is not Billy. That pic is from MB-1 and is one of the fountain guys. Unless Billy painted himself white and aged a little?? LOL

    That is a spoiler wing on the front to help keep that boat from wanting to take off and fly. These boats do that when you run with no tabs and have tons of angle in the ride plate.

    Phil when your shoe is tucked and bosses are ground you can get one hell of an angle. If your to much your going to be dolphining.
