I wonder if adding some weight to the front would stop the porpoising?

Took both motors to make one,had to take jug and piston from one and put on the other,but still have a good lower end,will eventually bore that jug and new piston for a backup

That's me. From my experience anything that adds turbulence to the front of the tunnel is no Bruno. Your build is top notch. Keep up the good work and have fun

Smart Tabs- $129 at Bass Pro- will stop the porpoising. That is one cool boat there by the way. Or keep the big rock, that works too.

i would hook up some sort of trim to the nozzle that way you can angle the venturi down and get rid of any top end bounce....
