    Rudder placement

    Samuel are you running clockwise or counter clock wise laps?

    Rudder placement

    Can someone tell me if it matters what side of the strut the rudder goes on if the turn fin is on the right side and what the difference would be in performance?

    Hatch attachment methods

    Really? How far down is your strut from the bottom of the hull and how far down from the bottom of the sponsors?

    I see you have your strut bracket mounted to the bottom of the hull. What's the difference between this and mounting it to the transom?

    Thanks for all the really great ideas. They have helped a ton. This is my first large hydro and figuring out some of these small ins and outs are tricky.I'm sure I'll have a few more as it comes along

    Hatch attachment methods

    Did you use 2part foam to fill the wings? And do your bolt going into the top wing just thread into the side of the top wing itself or did you add a nut or aluminum inside the top wing?

    When the bolts go threw the side wings what do they thread into on the top wing? Also What do yo guys add to the wings to make them float or do they float on their own?

    Since we're on the topic of rear wings. Do you guys use nylon screws for the top portion of the aluminum tube brace that runs from the transom up to the top inside of the wings? And stainless screws to attach the aluminum tubes to the transom?

    Since mounting brackets have to be used. Has anyone ever used nylon screws? Or is that a bad idea?

    Brad I guess I'm confused as to where the magnets are mounted on the hull and the hatch.

    Will they create a gap? Post pics if you could please

    For both of those methods do you use pins to align it? Also I take it that lexan or carbon fiber sheets are used to seal the hull openings with tape and keep water out?
  15. How do you guys attach the hatch to the hull? I've seen the o ring method but it would be a shame to use it on boats that look this nice. I would like a "cleaner" look.
