Vector/Merc 135 Setup
Hi again Randy,
like you have things very dialed in. We have the same problem with
hydrofoils on our own boat, so we made our own plate that is mostly
forward of the propeller. It doesn't hurt the top end like the rearward
car plate models out there. If you want one, we sell them for $140.00, and
they are made from stainless. The cost is up there, because I only make 10
at a time. Mainly machine shop cost. You can email me at our web site if
you want info @ www.gpiracing.com.
I know of no other plate that will not hurt your top end on the Vector.
It's just a short boat that is extra sensitive.
