The first test the hull set to low in the water.
I added two floatation pods in the back .
The hull now floats much better but it changed the weight center
of the boat and I can't get the nose up over the water.
 I'm pushing a huge wake in front of the boat.
The more power I give it the slower it goes .
I'm going to move every thing to the back both seats and the gas tank.
Hope it works , it'll be a hell of a job.

It sounds like it is working fine - as long as you are going in reverse.   :innocentwhistle:    :innocentwhistle:     :innocentwhistle:
