    Porpoising

    Does your boat porpoise at all?....

    Did it come with a "tab" of some sort, a welded "wedge" at the transom maybe?

    16' Crestliner I had porpoised like crazy at a certain speed.
    It came from the factory with a welded on "tab", where the hull bottom meets the transom.
    Bending that tab down solved the problem.

    A friend had a Lund that porpoised like crazy. He put a hydro foil on it. I don't know what brand or size but it fixed it.

    It will at slower speeds but I think every bass boat I have had would do that between 25 and 35 depending on trim. CJ
