Don't know if that sentence made sense to anyone but...

Noticed that too Panther. Seems to meet or match the same 'plane' (not Citation or King Air ) as the #sixes. Guess it makes sense at those speeds?! Seems you would have to trim down further for them to even start biting though?

i would think when the hull is almost completely air out (like reggie was in the kilo run) having the tab parallel to the water would be better i would think than having one corner dip in the water first.... but what do i know, i have a cat...
