You are then looking at trying different props and deciding what works best with this set up.
Looks like and amazing set up althought I am suprised that you are not getting more support from Bruge Marine as they know more about racing these things than most.
Hi, thanks for you advices.
The thing that I bought the boat with the french importer who currently closing his activity. Then the assembly has been done in mercury performance center yard in France but who are not familiar at all with the "planning pad". It was the first time they saw that on rib. They used to set up only revenger and solent rib.
I saw on your profile that you are a vipermax owner. Does your boat have this "drift effect" on the pad sometimes. How fast is it going ?
