Default Bouncing boat

Hi Chellie;
Lovely to hear from you.
The goal for that boat was 50mph, it has trim tabs set just right, and on that run the strut was very close to perfect. I can get it to settle down, but at the cost of speed, the more boat in the water the more drag the slower it goes. Basically all I want in the water is the prop and the rudder and perhaps a tiny bit of the hull by the transom to keep it straight.
I made 49.4mph on another run, fall was upon us and testing stopped.
John
