Re: 2 inches makes a difference


nope the jackplate has only one set of holes that mount to the transom the other holes it has wont fit...the motor has several holes i can mount on 4 i think...every thing is in the rear of the boat the only thing that gets put up front is my rods... when i run i put my tackle bag (45lbs or so) in between me and my pasenger if i put it up front i got to trim real slow or it will porpoise like crazy so run with it in the back...theres nothing but the deck extension up front and troler motor. and yes when at rest the stern sits lower than the bow it has a nose up attitude. i guess ill wait and see what the raker does hope shes the right prop.. fyi the propshaft right now sits at 3 and 3/4 below the pad is this about were i need to start testing the raker or does it like to be lower or higher.. when im at 3''1/2 below the pad if i trim up ill drop water presure exp. in turns so this is about as high as i can as far as h20 pressure is concerend.

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


Wevel.....Ok you say your at 3 and 3/4 and if you get any higher you loose pressure.......We have to figure out why you cant get closer to 3"s below pad....What does the pressure drop to?????? You say you loose it in the turns?????What does it drop 2........Now we are really getting somewhere.....beleive it or not that 3/4 of an inch is going to make a big difference.

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


block off the top 2 holes on the intake ports Thats the only way I know of he's getting to 3 below. With the extensions he's probably still in the turbulent water.

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


first id like to say thanks to the setup gurous on this board i set my cousins triton up with 9% slip but this ole bees tryin my patience.... ok when i ran my gade at 3 1/2 i had 17 pounds of pressure when i trimed it up all the way it would drop to 11 when im turning it would drop to 11 also...i know u fellers got alot more experice than me but i think i might need to go lower.... today i ran the raker 24 pitch i turned it 5000 rpm the exact same as the gade the hydrofoil was about 6 inches out the water when wide open no mater what way i trimed it it would only run 42mph it had no were near the lift of my gade but i dont think its the prop itself i just think its to high to realy bit the water and get that bow up so as of now im gona see what i get out of this prop with setup and all... and if i trimed it fast it would porpoise bad the gade wouldnt hardly ever porpoise. im running 7 inches of setback. the raker just seems to loose its lift when i start triming as the gade would keep pulling the bow higher. the raker will just barly pick the bow up ( less than the gade and the gade lifted the stern higher to) so far the gades a better prop beter holeshot betertopend raker has better midrange. but i think the raker could be a beter prop with the right setup just need to know which way to start movin the plate i think down so maybe it will lift more but what do u guys think.. ohh and the 5000 rpm is when the prop is still hooked up at about 3/4 trim when i go full trim my rpms climb to 5300 and i drop to 40mph so my best trimm is 3/4 and 5000rpm 42mph

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


hey dirk lets say my water pressure wasnt a factor and i got the propshaft tho 3 inches yes by therory i would have more rpms due to less drag of the lower unit but wouldnt i slip more and have less bow lift the prop already seems to be sliping pretty bad . using rbi's prop slip calculator im getin 26 to 29 percent slipage oh and when i droped my 200 pound passenger of top speed was still 42 at 5000 rpm sorry for the lengthy post im just tryin to get ya all the info ya need .

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


Dayum wevel I never heard of a triton getting 9% slip those are alison, stroker and Bullet numbers. That's awesome . Typically a triton runs at 12 to 14 at best but norm is 15 and that's super light. did ya factor in 1 in extra pitch for cup, Id have that tach checked.
did ya use gps or speedo

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


Looking at that pic you're running that plate almost max height Im bettin with that 14 1/2 raker you're too high and losin lift
has it been cupped if not give Jay a ring sounds like ya need it.
porpoising is sometimes caused when a prop loses bite for a second and drops the nose or a real bad hook in the keel. Usually caused by sittin on a maladjusted trailer for a long extended time.
 
I don't wanna sound like I'm bustin chops here but you're askin a lot from a 4 banger
I realize you want as much out of her as ya can get but like Clint Eastwood says
"A man gotta know his limitations" emoticon

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


its 13 1/2 raker... no matter what i have i want to maximize it i know what ur saying though i got a bud with a stratous and a 115 and hes running a 24 raker at 52mph so i figure i could at least run that fast im not asking for 60 or 70 but realy just 50 in smoth water as this thing will run in rough water the gade never porpoised so ill try lowering the plate next time out and see what i get
