83mph is a real good speed to launch off a wave at in a 20 ft boat.

Does this happen when the motor's too high? Similar to losing steering when trimmed right up??

I thought they were trying to out turn me as thats what I'd be douing to them all day, twas the only way I could keep up. I was sat there thinking 'hey that was a nice tight turn not sure If I'm gunna be able to compete with that'

Surely if you take off at 83mph with the motor right up and trimmed out swinging a large bladed prop when you land its gunna paddle wheel you round, set back or no? If there's waves out there that are going to cause you to take off you shouldn't try and run like those 'scream and fly' nobba's on their nice flat lakes.

Surely you dont need a lifter with all that power on a p20 anyways dude? Bolt her on the back with a little offset and then try it i reckon? prob fly alot more level! There used to be a phantom 21 down our way that was running a tuned 2.4 bridgeport and he had so much offset (bout 2-3 inches) to make her run level! Might be wrong though, just my two pence worth on the subject
