Would a tunnel tab force the air in and get rid of the hop?

The are from New Zealand. Here is a link to the company history webpage.

If you boat in water than canbe very rough and snotty, It seems like this cat will give you the best ride. Ir you want all out speed, you had better keep looking.

Using a tunnel tab above like 50mph is only for people with a great deal of cat driving experience. A good way to stuff the boat fast IMO. More power or slow down is a better solution.

ps- Duke's boat runs 80ish.
thats one function, the other is to help pack air in the tunnel then the boat is at speed

Not a bad looking boat. The hull just doesnt look like it works right. Maybe to much weight in the bow with the cabin. Their are two running around here in our area. If speed isnt a issue, and you can pick the boat up right, mabe you will be happy. Better check insurance. Cats are crazy to insure, it be a shame to pay all that money for insurance to go 85-90 mph.
