Here's a great reason to get your own ShawWing™
Thanks for calling last Monday and talking with me about the ShawWing™ Cavitation plate. I received it Thursday morning and was able to install it by the afternoon. I hooked the boat up Saturday morning and hauled her to the Port Sulphur area to give it a try. I was a little on the skeptical side at first, but it didn't take long to change that. What an unbelievable difference it made. I use this boat to scout for redfish tournaments so I took my partner along for the ride. I think he was just as excited as I was.
First, the “porpoiseing” issue I was experiencing from the weight of the new motor is gone.
Second, is the “hole” shot. As far as speed to plane, my boat was extremely quick to plane already and the ShawWing was still able to improve on that. Where the big difference is, is in the depth in which I can launch now. What use to take about 10" now takes 7" or 8" maybe less, and when you are idling around trying to find the water to plane out of a pond, looking for those extra few inches can take what seems like forever.
Fifth You have given me much more than just a cavitation plate; you have given me the full potential of my boat, thanks. It is a shame that more people around here don't use these things; they are missing out on what their boat can really do.
Thanks a bunch,
P.S. I forgot to mention my plane speed is down to about 12 mph now, which will help in my future scouting adventures and reduce fuel consumption.
