Thanks for the compliments guys, Im very pleased how it turned out. Thanks too Andy for the guidance on the struts as well, the last time I had it out testing the motors started to wake up and the speed picked up which lead to some prop walk and caused my left turn correction ability to disappear, I will definitely try those strut angle measurements to see if I can get it back without adding too much throw back into the rudder. Not quite ready to throw my wickedly pitched props at it, want to get the handling right before we go stupid fast!

Thanks again!

 

Greg,

The flatter strut on the left will reduce some pressure off the right sponson. If the boat tries to pull right on hard acceleration flatten the struts a bit.  May also need to play with the fin AoA. As you go to bigger props you may need a larger/wider rudder to keep it running straight.
