Default High speed turns

I am wondering where the drive and tab locations should be if you were turning in a race type turn around a mark. I have a v hull w/ twin outboards.

Thanks guys

Josh

Not trimmed down or under and power through the turn. You don't want the nose to fall and catch a wave. You want to carry the bow. So,,,slow down before you start the turn, not during.

I don't think there would be a "blanket" answer to this.
Every hull is going to react a little different - or a lot different.
If you're running th Banana in your tag line, I'm sure Charlie could chime in and tell you what kinda shorts you should be wearing depending on different conditions and how your trying to run the boat

Just don't do it! Especially if medical personell and a bunch of helicopters aren't flying above. More accidents are caused by the "rookie powerslide" than all other accidents put together!

Trying to find that controlled slide is no easy task.

I have to agree with that statement. Don't fix what aint broken. You guys need to build a set of Angelo's monster's for the Chip. P1 is going to be some tough competition. I want to see a V hull mop up all those cats this year....... Then they will say that the boat is too fast for P1.
