have been waiting all summer for the season to end so I can de-rig my
Vector, flip it and start building a quick bottom for it. I am looking for
any advice, input or pictures of what to do with this bottom.
currently running a 6" set back J-plate, Bob's lwp, on a 2.5
Merc with lots of work done to it in the lake racer class (only allowed
150 psi compression). I have just made many changes to my set up to
make this thing more comfortable to run and easier to drive.
planning on making all the edges sharp and flat but I was wondering if you
had any tricks on what to do on the pad? Should I make it concave
like on a V-king or keep it flat? If I do change the running pad how will
that change how I plane off and run the 1/4 mile and do I need to make any
big changes to the set up?
input is welcome,
