    RE: outrigger help

    Yeah, I noticed! First, call them sponsons as that's what we call those thingies.
    Alrighty then, the next questions. What boat is it, that'll help a lot. Now, just an assumption, I'd guess that they're made of aluminum tubing. they should be equally apart on both sides but some people move the tub to the right a little, 3/8" or so to help keep the right one planted in the turns.

    RE: outrigger help

    To further expand on Ron's comments,
    if you can posts some pics, that would help quite a bit.
    most riggers need more than just have the sponsons tubes even, most set up will require some toe in/or out and some shimming may be needed to have one side a bit higher than the other.

    knowing exactly which rigger you have will help getting you the correct setup.
