   Updated 6/11/02..... "Finally put a RapidJack 7"- 8" jackplate on the boat. It is   
  currently set back 7". The propshaft is 3.25" below the pad.  
  The speed didn't pick up at all.  I replaced my 19" Ballistic  
  with a Powertech 17" TRO wheel.  Holes on the low pressure  
  side of each blade.  Boat gets on plane in less than half the   
  time but the top speed dropped to 44.1 mph. I think I'm   
  going to return the new Powertech and have my Ballistic  
  cleaned up."  
     Updated 12/8/02... "Just had my worn out Ballistic reworked, holes drilled on the  
  low pressure side of the blade - gets on step much faster  
  than before.  Raised the air intake cowl creating a sort of   
  hood scoop 1.25" above the engine cow and got 3 mph, all  
  for $4.60!!  Finally broke 50 on the GPS and gained 300   
  rpm."
