    Steps, Vents and Shingles

    Yes especially hydros. Even with heavy twin 101’s we have pretty much abandoned shingles and steps. Launch has a lot to do with weight distribution. With the more rear placement of the motors launch is not an issue In the past motors were placed forward requiring wider sponsons and steps etc to launch and get up on step Ideal weight distribution is 1/3 of the total weight on each front sponson and at the transom. Years ago with forward placed motors radio and etc, we would use a FISH SCALE and attach it to the transom and see how much weight it took to lift the transom/rear sponsons of the table. If too much weight the boat would not run well NOW WE LIKE TRANSOM WEIGHT AND LESS ON THE FRONT

    Steps, Vents and Shingles

    Interesting concept We have tried shingles from front to rear and side to side. Very loose front end. Tried a single shingle/ wedge at the vary rear of front sponson. Launch is immediate, VARY FAST BOAT. However the boat was on edge and tends to lift and blow off. This happened to my 60 hydro in Brandon. Had the same on my 40 hydro for a while with same issue. Removed the step/ wedge and finished second at Brandon With the current motors NEW PROPS/ABC, I don’t believe steps shingles and etc are needed, especially with heat racing speeds of 80-90mph. Steps and etc create edgy instability

    Motor location

    To measure the balance/CG Purchase 3 inexpensive food scales and place one under each sponson and transom with the boat level Generaly 33% of the total weight at each point is generally ideal

    2019 5th Annual Winter Nitro Championship

    We had a great time in Brandon. All 3 of us made it into the finals from the Huntsville club. Even though I did not win B Hydro(40 hydro) 2nd not bad with 40+ entries for a Senior Citizen. Thanks to all of the Club members that put on the race. It was a real team effort and the hard work resulted in an outstanding race. Special thanks the Larry Beals his wife and crew for cooking the hot dogs hamburgers and soups.
