    As you increase the angle of the gate in relationship to the side of the boat it will tend to lift the non surf side of the boat making it list.
    A nice side effect .

    So ineffect the flow should list the boat without any weight, just the flow deployed

    Not in my experience with gates which would have more potential of increasing the angle of attach to the water (like a foil) compared to a flow system. I have a couple degrees on mine to keep from water being scooped up. I can't tell. I've ran my gates without weight and there was no noted list.

    Russ, two more ghetto gate questions.

    What's the best way to measure the curve of the transom and do you think the pressure from the gate will crush the normal platform, non surf, with the gate?

    I used trial and error with a piece of cardboard to match the shape of the transom.

    I do not think the gate will crush the factory platform. Which part are you most concerned about, fiberglass, mounts, etc?

    I would pad the mount surface and make sure the gate is tightly secured. I really don't think it will damage the fiberglass.

    Disclaimer- I have not tried with the factory platform.

    What weighting were you using?
