In January I got a Whiplash sport 40 for a birthday present from my cousin Aron. Sense then I've been busy.

Yes I did I've been to busy to reply Doc. The cowl how are you going to fix the that? The skis any exacts or trail and error? Oh what are you getting at with the tail feathers? LOL thanks for the suggestion Charlie

I am going to use a different cowl. The tail of the Whiplash cowl looks good BUT WHEN THE BOAT BLOWS OFF AND HITS THE WATER THE VERTICAL HEIGHT OF THE TAIL AREA OF THE COWL IS LIKE A WALL AND RIPS THE COWL OOF INCLUDING THE NOSE OF THE HULL. It actually broke my pipe mount out of the bottom of the hull and ripped the pipe out, loosing a $150 Bouchie pipe to the bottom of the lake.

A new cowl will be on mine

I am going to use a ABC PLASTIC COWL, one Mark used for a sport 40 he designed. I haven't tried yet getting it in place. It is ROUNDED AND SLOPES DOWN TO THE BACK OF THE BOAT. NO VERTICAL TAIL.
