    Would not call that a geto gate.

    I think you will find all the depth is not necessary unless you have the boat listing heavily.

    We have found that height out of the water is critical if you want to really slam the the thing in the water you will submerge the gate greatly diminishing its effectiveness.

    There is almost no angle for the blade, it is in line with the hull. I'll post pics later but the gate worked very well. We were running about 5k in ballast with about a 500lb bias to the surf side. The wave was strong, clean, and noticeably longer.

    Just realized that my wife didn't get any pics with me and I didn't get a pic of just the wave. I'll get more photos next time out.

    Surfed well with 900s in both rear lockers, 1180 in the playpen locker, partially filled 540 on top of the 1180 in the playpen. 400 in the bow, 400 in solid ballast on surf side under ballast boy seat. I really enjoyed the slight list and no bags on the seats in the lounge area.

    The wave was even better when I added the 900 to the lounge area floor. This wasn't needed but why not....

    There is some reduction in steering control with the gate but not anything unmanageable.

    Are the gates fixed or do they deploy / swing out?
