Have any of you guys with XR20s ever been able to make the boat porpoise? On most ribs its most likely to happen with the cg towards the back. The pad on the XR24 is 2.8 metres long and 0.5 metres wide, which helps with stability. I'm surprised its so much smaller on the XR20. We're at the early stages of designing our Eco XR21 and deciding what size to make its planing pad.

Taking that to it's logical conclusion the ultimate planing pad is fitted to boats made by a couple of companies...... Dell Quay & Orkney are the two that spring to mind!

I haven't measured my pad but that looks to be approximately what it is. Fr@nky's is different as his XR20 used to have an inboard and water jet fitted. My boat is a few miles away at the moment on it's trailer, but next time I'm up there (some point this week) I will measure it for you. It's triangular in shape and starts pretty much where the V of the bow would normally start forming the keel, if that makes sense
