2* down and 6* up on a v hull  ?

There is no real science to the degree of up and down. Just a starting point. Typically every boat will react differently. Just have to work on it to find your sweet spot.

No problem, also you start with it down when running from a dig, you want the boat to nose over and then click it up to your liking position that is quickest with your set up.  You loose momentum when the boat shoots up and out  of the water.

Typically you have a diverter stop. You arenít achieving your best mph with the diverter all the way up. Usually with a Manuel handle depending on what hull and set up you have the quickest setting is 3-4 clicks up

Check your impeller. Your wear ring is probably welded too it.  If thatís the case that would be the isolator ring used to hold the wear ring in.

Iíll give you a little history,  earl smith created the hull design back when eliminator came out with the Daytona. Eliminator had the Mph record and what earl did is took a 19í Daytona , cut the sponsons and folded them in then he put an 18 deck on it.  Earl was the originator of this hull design and the rest are splashed or copied off his design. These boats haul ass and are quick but the major issue is when you have a hard shut down they hook a sponson and you go swimming.  Iíve heard a saying that goes with these boats. (Itís not if youíre gonna go swimming itís when!) Jack McClure made a bolt or add on sponson to aid the issue then Scotton copied it and added it to his mold. So with that being said if youíre trying to go fast in it make sure you have all the proper safety equipment when doing so. Iíve seen a picture of one that was actually split in half. Crazy stuff .

I'm not sure what it is, changed title to reflect
thought someone might be interested


Itís a earl smith Texas tunnel hull. They were made to compete with the 19í Daytona.  Earl actually took a 19í Daytona, cut the sponsons and put an 18í gullwing deck on it.  These boats are usually super light and very sketchy on shut down. They like to make abrupt turns and send the driver out of the boat to go swimming.

Keep it. As much time and effort you have into it so far, you'll kick yourself later if you sell it.

Brought her to the shop over the weekend, cleaned her up and was playing with the parts and mock up stuff.  No serious bites yet. May just keep her.
