new poly

I'm finally getting around to replacing my poly on my old bear deck over once I get all the holes welded up . I had one of the first sheets of 5/16 gatorback on it. Whats everyone's opinion on replacing it ,is gatorback worth the extra money or should I use something else thanks

Re: porpoising

Lower can help but can also make it worse. It can push nose down and water push it back up witch will cause it to porpoise worse. May need jacks in hull. Bottom could be flexing against water pressure. I would deff start with bottom of hull. Just my 2 cents

Back edge will cause it to hop like said above check with flat edge. Sharp edge will def help. Boat can rock on a rounded edge
