Bigcatpt-- Much respect for the feedback!
You really think the shaper is holding me back here? Doing what you said, could the shaper be an addition to supporting a great wave, or at that point (leaning over to the rub rail) we're talking diminishing returns/not going to make a difference?
Any recommendations/brand on what #580 side sacs to grab and/or #1100 pound sac for the rear sacs? Round or square rear sac to better protect pushing too hard against the hull? Could I even buy two custom #1800 sacs, all in one, one port one starboard, that continue from the rear under the port/starboard seats? This way I would be able to use the plumed in lines for the sacs so filling and draining would be simple. (Switch from #750 to #1100 or the all in one #1800)
Otherwise, the two #580 side sacs (one port one starboard) will be using my tsunami drop-in pump. Rider side switch, drain one side then fill the other. A 10-15 min process I don't really mind for the upfront money I saved, but want to be as efficient with this fill/drain process as possible.
My current trim plate is flat and manual. If I keep this, any recommendations as to what position to leave it in? (All the way down, up, neutral) Same question if I grab the wing trim plate. (Down, up, neutral) I don't want to be in the water with a wrench making adjustments all day ha, and not going to drop any $$ on an electric one.
Sorry for all the questions but man I appreciate your knowledge!
