They go by different names, but all do about the same. I've been using one (DolFin) for 25 years on my 50 hp Johnson. It's on it's third boat now. I notice no negative effects such as loss of speed, although some will say it drops it a mile or 2 per hour. It makes a lot of positive by the way it helps my boat jump on plane so much quicker. Also aids in reducing cavitation in a tight turn.

I have a Mercruiser with a Atwood 2 piece hydrofoil, and it actually increased my top end by 6mph.

Compared to not having one, I would never go without one. I know it helped my boat tremendously.

Now here's a gentleman that's on the question that was asked. However the newer meaning might be bad on my heart.....but it would be great for my ego if I lived through it......lmao.

Yeah, i'm getting the feeling that I completely missed something. I didn't read the thread all the way through before posting. Then again, I probably missed the big picture long before that.:smile-big:

Should I feel good or bad that I didn't need to search to know what a "whale tail" was, even though I have now been informed that were other options too? :smile1:

Does it mean that I have actually hit the older age when I didn't even consider option #2? Am I "old school" or behind the times? :cowboy:
