I'm with you matey, goes better with the weight to bow rather than aft.
So, I have just marked out the console and the jockey & applied gel coat this morning, Tomorrow I will apply non slip flow coat. To be honest I could have got away with just a single coat of flow coat but being new to this & as it was a colour change I played the cautious route
I will post some photos Wednesday & link you in on the project. Jeff Stevens on here has been very helpful.
So by moving the console forward, the ride may/will be harsher in chop, it may/will be more prone to spray. BUT the extra weight in the bow will/may help it to cut through certain chop and it will get on plane quicker. There may be a greater chance of chine walking but adjust trim or/& power down to sort it.
Just a thought here fella but have you considered the trying the SST hydrofoil jobbies that fit onto the AV plate (I think)
