gotcha, 100......would be nice


I will just have to do as you said ....a lot of trial and error.

Just thinking in comparison purposes. I have looked at some lighter..much lighter by about 7000lbs and noticed that they are running their lower units pretty much like the Apache. They are also 100mph boats thought, but they are outboards-hydrostreams.

And also not in rough water.

Tony, I posted on your thread I have the templates your asking about PM me with your address and I will send them to you. As far as your heights work from the homeland boat raise the centers 1 or 2 holes and see what you've got. If all is well raise them some more. Take lots of notes and calculate your slip, Have different props on hand. And the beat goes on.

They are the same and both notched. If it was not notched the transom would be one plane and it would form a V to the lowest point.

I have often thought exactly the same thing about introducing air only "my" system just had a scoop to push air instead of a pump. I figured that at 100mph there would be enough air being forced in through the scoop to the bottom of the boat to provide the air hockey table effect.

Guess the next problem is "my" system increases air drag on the boat, whereas "your" system just uses a tiny amount of horsepower to operate the pump.
