Having said this, I'm still with the poster who said "why do you want bow lift on your stepped bottom boat?"

To have the option to raise the bow at slower speeds when caught up in 4-5 footers. Gulf changes quickly.

All stepped bottom boats run flat. You will never get the bow to carry like a traditional v-bottom at least from what I have seen. When we would run our 34' Fountain CC to stay dry you had to run faster and get on top. Slow speeds do not work well. If this is your first step bottom boat be careful about high speed turns with drives/tabs tucked in also. They operate differently. You will find some props that will make a small difference and I agree with them that the tabs are not the issue.
