porpoising
« on: December 04, 2019, 08:36:16 PM »
Im looking for some advise or knowledge on  porpoising hoping whatever you wanna call it it sucks. I have a southwind 19 with BBF Berkeley pump droop snoot etc. No matter what rpm and where the diverter is angled it starts hopping really bad. Any help on this or a solution would be greatly appreciated

Those hulls have a porpoising issue. I believe the problem is being exacerbated by the droop. Pull the droop off in favor of a stock nozzle adapter and run it. You may still porpoise at certain speeds, but it should get better.

Some boats are prone to it. Adding trim (diverter) or changing the trust angle (droop) can make the problem worse. My Advantage would porpoise at certain mid-range speeds if it wasn't trimmed right and the weight distribution was off.

Good luck on getting your pump and hull setup!!
