got mine out on the water again today after shimming up the rear of the engine some more, rode out to hotdog island and added another shim and i'm out of room it still was plowing, brought it back to the shop and added aluminum to the grassrake and the front spare wing off my mini sprint above the air cleaner and took her back out what an improvement but she's still plowin, i'm gonna look for a smaller tank and slide it back as far as I can go and from there I guess I'm gonna add a wing above the rudders to push the ass down in the water. she rides a lot like a step hull no complaints about that but I cant stand the plowing, if ya'll have any ideas please chime in

Dak10, That is a damn nice boat dude.
It would be interesting to see how many hours/years it will go,
without any maintenance beyond oil changes.
