    Light to medium Chop riding issues

    05RXT, stock prop, grate, intake. Runs great!But when I encounter chop, even slight (about 1 foot or so) it feels as if the prop jumps out of the water, then back in, etc, etc, etc. Kind of reminds of a clutch catching, slipping, slipping, catching, etc upon load. Or perhaps I can explain it by saying it feels as if the prop pushes air, then water, then air again...

    In chop that heavy,that is probably EXACTLY what is happening.......
    Removing the OPAS will help with control,and if you put a Riva grate on it will help some,but when the hull leaves the water,you WILL cavitate the pump........

    Your best solution for the chop will be opas block-offs and a top-loader style intake grate. The grate will keep the pump loaded better and reduce the ammount the pump comes unhooked.
