Nope. In fact the further you go back, the more you have to go up. That's because as water exits your transom, it comes back up on an angle. So if you just extend outward, your prop is actually deeper in the water.

Big money or not, this is the answer to your question.

It aireates the props to help get them spinning and push the boat on plane. Takes a lot to get a big surfacing prop spinning when it is comepletely submurged. Once on plane the tube do nothing as they are above the water level.

is there a tell tale sign that the trim is too high? with some props they stay hooked up with quite a bit of trim

If you have a "normal" (non-high performance) boat and you want to throw a big rooster tail, all you're going to do is tear up parts. That's because in order to throw one with a normal X dimension, prop and power, you're going to have to over trim your drive. That will beat the hell out of your U-joints. Besides, all of us who legitimately throw a good sized rooster because of a correct high performance setup are going to mock the hell out of you for showing off as you destroy your out drive.

Yes. That would be the bow flopping around like a hooker in heat.

Three #6 boats, both Fountains trimmed all the way in to throw these tails at around 60 mph.
