I think I have a 2009 Hyperlite Motive 140 as the beginner board, which I think has a decent center fin. Can't check it now since it's on my boat at another location.

Yeah, I agree it's mostly technique - just wanted to give people as much advantage as I can. As with most people's experience, it's usually the guys that have the most trouble.

I think I can see the mirror easily enough. It's not blocking my view when I don't need it, but with a slight glance up I can see everything behind the boat. The PTM Edge mirror is really nice...

That's my Skireel ropewinder, which is no longer made. And on top of that is the white navigation light added by Samson (wired to my dash's Nav switch). The Skireel is very useful, because you can...

The problem doesn't happen at the low RPMs I've gotten the engine...

I just used a much larger bit (run in reverse) to countersink it and grind away the gelcoat about 1/16" around the hole. I saw that tip somewhere - hopefully it's as good as using a specific bit...
