Stainless Marine has 'em. Ask Fred with Trick Marine. He's a dealer.

hey fred/too old, do you have the bottom mount water pick ups, not the ones that mount on the transom? and they are like a plate that is flush and looks like a naca duck used on nascar air intakes for the drivers? does this make sense to you, i think mti uses the same ones i am talking about?

Here is a picture of a pick-up from a MTI cat... you can see the lip extends beyond "flush"... It is NOT like a NACA duct....

Actually that lip you see is adjustable to control h2o pressure. It can be raised up to look just like a NACA Which I believe alot of race boats run them to reduce drag.

hey reed, if you look close, you can see that the intake starts in front of the intake pipe, just like a naca duct, and not just a pipe sticking down!

Nick-
Go to the Jaguar forum and look at the intake that I installed: Stainless Marine. This is similar to Skater's.
The pipe is extra long because hull thickness varies, but you trim the pipe. The entry into the pickup has about a 6" long "shaped-recess" ground into the hull, which leads into the pipe. The forward part of the pipe doesn't protrude: its sunk-in. The back of the pipe protrudes "maybe" 1/8": depends on the boat.
