You will not have any of the probs that II have ,,but possibly. A good call to keep the transom dry,,

Mine is all my own doing,, should of bought a speed boat ,,,

Lucky for me I do have a secret lake I can wangle very occasionally.

My old Viper used to create a lot more "Splashing" round the back 'cause the tubes drag in the water. Great for stability at rest not ideal for turning into a Coniston lake applicant...

If the anti ventilation plate is set about 1.5 to 2" above the bottom of the keel it should be good then its down to props and whether you could do with a four blade to give is some transom lift. You might be able to do away with the sand then

It was the tubes dragging in water that used to cause my old Viper to wag its tail. Getting them out the water helped...

Edd. Get yourself some lead shot it's great for ballast and you don't need as much volume of it. I used to bring home the waste from the shot blast machine at work... I know of a couple of boats round here that have some hidden in the bow!
