I talked to Glenn Hopkins and his advice for me either to try extending my trim tabs across the length of the transom and make them adjustable or welding a pad to the bottom of the boat. He said make it 5 ft in length and about 14 inches in width. I'm curious to know could I make it 10.5 inches in width? or even 12 inches possibly?
10.5 would be better for the way the hull comes to a V at the stern and the chimes are so dang close together.
I would think the narrower the pad the faster it would go but harder to control correct?
would my 50 tohatsu have a hard time getting the boat onto a 10.5 inch pad??
What advice can yall give me? I hadn't talked to Glenn in a couple of days and been brain storming this.
