    We are going to keep the notch. Is yours notched? Would love to see pics of yours, the red looks great.

    I've been keeping up on this build. I had purchased a 22 Activator a few months back and are in the process of re-rigging the boat.

    Mine is notched. I want to fill it with the heavier 3.0 motor that's on it now, just haven't had the time.

    Awesome. I love these boats. Great to see another in good hands. Keep us posted. When are you hoping to get it on the water?

    Ya, it's a lot of work. Some have good results. I think with the right setup it should be okay though with the notch.

    I ripped out every piece of wiring, B/S stereo unit and amp, replaced all wiring and installed a new stereo. Now I just have to re-finish the gear case and I should be in the water in a couple of weeks. Mine has the engine on a set back with no engine well.

    I had my fuel tank bone dry, had the sender out, made sure it was clean. Figured it was a 63 or 70 gallon tank......Nope. Only took about 35 gallons.

    Laser what are you doing for setup? I am still in the process of rigging mine. Seems to be taking longer than I hoped, but curious what motor/setback you are doing. ?

    wave what did mark have to say about the notch? Keep calm fill?

    Set up is a flat transom with a set back and a hydraulic transom mounted to that. For now, I have a 2.4 liter 200 on it with a Bobs low water pick up nose cone. I haven't had it in the water yet but if you want, I'll send you some pictures. Just I/M me your phone number.

    We didn't talk about it too much. The notch measures about 7" and we are probably going with a 6 to 8 inch jackplate, depending on which engine we go with. So, that's about right for setback. If we filled it, we would be running more setback, you'd have more running surface, but I'm not sure it's worth it.

    Other similar hulls with notches run really well.

    That is keith's old boat he removed the notch.... ran better without it, not so sure about the notch is their to reduce set back... in theory yes
    But there's more involved than that, set back is really about balance and where you want the running surface to be. More positive trim will also get you there but at the expense of forward thrust

    Keith had 100's of hours of set up into that boat, some of his settings I would not agree with
    He thought running on the last 6" of the bottom was faster , but in the end he did realize there has to be a happy medium

    I know marked tried all different notch depths, If memory serves me keiths boat had like 12"

    Unfortunately he's out of the game he really liked to record all or outings

    Talking to Keith last summer I think he had his pad widened as well. At one point he was running 19” of setback. Not sure if he kept that set up after he filled in the notch. I’ll have to check my notes
