Hydrofoils

Hi all
Just purchased a mariner 6hp four stroke ( the one without the onboard fuel tank )
This came with a set of hydrofoils which are detached but the holes are drilled ready
And to the question
Are these worth putting on, and if they are that great why don't the outboard manufactures fit them as standard
Any input would be appreciated

Put them on and see if they work for you. I have a set on my boat and like having them as I often run heavy. Plus the bow stays down.
