A buddy blew his right off , but im wondering if he had them down at 60+. thnx sj
gsteve,
we did a set of the EMI k-plane 17" tabs on a 20ft hammer with a 540 and the the difference was night & day. I can put you in touch with the owner if you would like to talk to someone with first hand experience.

K-planes and hydro steer will be night and day on such a small boat with that kinda power. I wouldnt skimp if you are already going to the length of putting a HP motor in there. Sounds like you are keeping the boat for a while.

Yes, he had the bennett tabs that baja usually installs on their boats.

You can check them out at: http://www.tpmarine.com/index.asp?Pa...ROD&ProdID=855

This is what they look like.
