    Exclamation Installing the pump shoe

    Ok, I am ready to install my pump shoe. I noticed that when I test fit the shoe in the hull, I can move the shoe side to side and front to back. I understand that I need to get the pump shoe centered in place. BUT... were the shoe fits, do I want to slide the shoe all the way forward or back against to pump. Kind of hard to explain, but I hope that someone will understand.

    You want the shoe centered from side to side and pushed as far as possible to the rear of the ski. Some people make the holes larger to get the shoe even farther back, but I did not do that.

    When sealing make sure everything fits as planned and any inserts are flush with the shoe and do not make the shoe hang lower. Its easy to do and you really reduce the cavitation by sealing the shoe. Good luck
