    i get 2 pad types, the fist is: the wide of the pad is straight 12" and 5 feet of length, and the second is 12" but just 8" are straight and 5 feet of length

    i do a box of water with 5.5" of height and 8" of deep.

    i raised the hut like 3" in both cases.

    16' Magnum

    That boat reminds me of a 16' Magnum outboard vee bottom. Magnum also built a small outboart catamaran, sport and open fisherman, haven't seen one in 35 years

    Honestly, I'm not sure about the pads. What do you mean by "pad"?

    Rivera- What kind of running attitude does the hull take right now? How much of the boat is in the water at the speeds you run at? Does the bow tend to ride high, or point down? If the bow is fairly low when planing, does the stern tend to swing out a lot in sharp turns at speed? Or does the stern tend to ride low, dragging a lot?

    If you're already running bow-down, go with either no pad or the smallest you can possibly fit. If the bow's rising a lot, the extra lift from the pad might help smooth things out and so a bigger pad would help. You need to figure out how much of the boat is in the water when running as the pad cannot extend forward of the entry point.

    I believe that pads will decrease the speed required to plane.
