My boats constantly wanting to porpoise and fly, jumping out of the water no matter how hard I'm down on the cav pedal...it's way better then it was before, . I moved the engine forward ,moved the casale way forward , took a bunch of strut angle out of it, regeared the casale added a shaft release,, I can run it till it bangs the Rev limiter, but and I say but cuz it feels sketchy as hell cuz it never stops bouncing!!

Have you tried different props, props make a huge difference on these things, sound like you need one with less rake to it, moving prop shaft back helps too, in the K I put 3 quarters in the prop shaft coupler to space it back, it helped lay the nose over a little

Damn,, the vdrive stuff is so fun, but so personal, why would you shorten the cav plates? Troy Davis has been trying to help me,as much as I'll let, he's telling me I need two inch longer plates, to make my short boat think it's longer, I'm still fighting handling issues, I think I need more power to carry the nose, my boat after all the changes iv made still won't take a clean set even staying all the way down on the cav petal.. unless it's me fucking it up by not letting the turd get loose and fly.. idk..

Looks like your problem is backwards from what mine is, I canít keep mine in the water. My plate where 12Ē long way to long for the powder Iím pushing, they are still 8Ē thatís the length I had on the 034 and it worked good, I also might move the prop back some

Got the new transom block plate made new holes drilled, also pulled the tanks out, amazing the kind of stuff you can find behind the right tank, hoping to have it back together for the first SoCal meet in Parker

Ran it for a year didnít handle for shit, so tearing it apart again. Moving the strut and shorting the cav plates, also redoing the geometry on the plates. It worked ok but would not take a set unless I had a foot full of down pedal

Couldnít tell you, but one lucky bastard. That boat came out bitchen, pics do not do it justice.Hats off to all involved that help put that boat together for a great cause. The show was bad ass and all of the proceeds going to the men and women that give the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy the freedom to have events like this, Thank you Brad and Brittney we had a great time,

My trip ended short too, I blew a waterline off of the v-drive and tried to sink the boat
