Thanks guys & good info to have..

That being said; Artie if you need me to measure anything on the bottom of mine for whatever reason, just let me know & I'll do what I can to get those to you.. Not sure how much if any it would help you out, but wanted to offer.. ;-)

Arti this is my Donzi trimmed all the way in seems to be about the same as yours. Boat has a rounded bottom pad and a little bit of rocker I think. Micheal said learn to drive through it!

If I pull the Formula today or tomorrow I will get you some more pictures of that. I think the Formula trims under even less.

At first thought. I agree one would think you are not in the usable range of the trim. However curing a boat that porpoises certainly requires a trim in. How can you trim it in if your already trimmed in. In other words "set the Hull" then come back and trim up.

The CG issue I crawled up in the forward bow way up and
added 180lbs to the nose. Equivalent to 4 sand bags?
According to captain Art it had now effect. By the way I was
Scared [email protected] have you ever gone for a ride with Art in a car
never mind a boat Anyway maybe two guys preferably gay
should go in the nose.

Right now that boat does not have the ability to carry the nose.
I hear ya with the trim in more. IMO however, trimming it in would just be hiding/puting a band aid on a problem with the set up. Driving around trimmed way in to me is a scarry thought. He would have to push the boat fast enough trimmed in to get it to the point that maybe it will be able to be trimmed out, even scarrier idea. Once I get my boats on plane I start to trim them out to at leaste nutral. When I have talked to Arti he said getting on plane is not an issue at all.

Adding the box is going to get you more leverage. Any chance you guys can get a picture of a strait edge on the bottom of the boat? I would be interested to see if you only have rocker or if you have some rocker and a hook as well.

If you can get pictures don't only get them at the middle but at the lifting strakes and the outer areas of the hull.

Is that the only rocker and it is tight to the hull all the way up from there? That looks like about 1/8 of an inch? From what it sounds like to me there is hook and rocker in there.

Yes its only about 3 inches back and 1/8 deep. I'm not sure that's even Rocker? it is dead straight forward.

The 380's will help. Your gonna have to drag the tabs to take the bounce out in calm water. Once it gets a little snotty you won't notice it. Anybody put a call in to Doug at Saber?...curious to hear what he would have to say.
