hope that helps,

You actually were able to correct that in the props? Wow I never knew that. I haven't had mine long enough or any seat time to get that adressed. I was told Merc or Rolla's on mine.
I wanted to get some thoughts from Tres when I took his course.. But that is not happening until spring now!!

Thanks That makes me really curious now.

Every true cat I have owned driven or been in will have a slight porpoise in flat water when the hull is making the transition to packing air. Some are very slight and some are very severe. MTI, Skaters and even Motions will hop a little in flat water for a small speed zone. Around 75-85 mph for most cats. It is not a big deal and can make some people nervous if they do not understand why.

HEY BOYS!! I just went to school and learned what a tunnel tab is. You pansies should be ashamed of your selves - wasting so much time on such a ridiculous conversation.

Pleasure MTI's do not have trims tabs or tunnel tabs. Every cat will have a hop. Some slight some you can not drive.
Want proof. Here is two videos showing the cat hop. I would say two rather well setup boats.

Watch the first five seconds of this video.

flat water 45 seconds (75mph) into the video.
