You're right. My fault. 17" inch diameter is definitely a little to large :-)

NOS4r2 mine cavitates rather too easily as well, i have a weight balance issue on mine.

are you on the lowest hole already, or do you intend to take a chunk out of top of the transom to lower outboard???
keep us posted it seems to be an issue on the searider!

I'm on one hole up from the lowest. I think I should be Ok once I drop it that extra bit.

I run mine on the lowest setting. I would NOT take anything off the transom.

No slippage or cavitation problems, BUT, I probably get a lower top speed. Also my hull is flooding while I believe (and stand ready to be corrected) that you have yours plugged up NOS.

Mine is sealed. I'm only on the hole position I'm on because that's where it was when I bought it. My cav plate is about 5mm above the bottom of the transom.

Thing is it only makes a difference on the hole shot as once on the plane it doesn't matter. I haven't measured where I am against the keel as Freedom won't see her trailer until at least October .

Yep. I think I prefer the sealed hull in rough weather though-holeshot in bad seas can be quite important which is why I set up the flap on the flooding hull on my old sr4.
