bluby i have the same hull as you ,i havent had any porpoise problem yet which may not be a good thing, lots of people say if it bucks a little your real close to having it really free, i cant say, if you dont mind how far forward from transom is your rear legs mine is dual rear driver caddy dd, also what prop you spinning?BluByU2 said:MTtank...I'm running a 14 x 8 Jimmy White with quickslick, and the engine is a Buddy Branch series 2 model. It's bored .040 over to 509 cu. in., and it is cammed to hit the top of the torque curve at 2900 rpm. Compression ratio is 9.7 to 1. I've got the pitch on the prop set at a little less than "3". It's only been in the water three times, and I haven't had a chance to open it up on the water yet because of a minor porpoising problem I've been working on. I've made some adjustments, and I can't wait to see how it does next time out.
