    I installed one that is very similar to what Jim offers. You will gain 1.5 mph... 2 mph if you clean up the seam between the ride plate and hull and fill the ride plate and grate holes. You should definitely consider installing one. Big bang for the buck... but a time consuming affair.

    Edit: Mine does not have skegs, sorry I missed that on your original inquiry.

    why would you need to take rideplate off to shim it? just loosen bolts pull down on rear of plate and slide in a shim. at least thats what i did on the rear bolts when I ran Jims plate. I found that once I installed the RE blockoffs I did not need to shim Jims plate, however this was on and RXP not a RXT so your findings may differ.

    right, thats what i mean.. i would still have to take the epoxy out of the the ride plate holes and cut loose the silicone between hull and plate. maybe jerry or jim might read this and let me know the results on an RXT.

    Set your plate up first.Then epoxy the holes and seal the plate after its setup...
