Thats what i said they are not straight ,as anyone can see from the pics.Maybe i should have said theyre not straight anymore
,i wasnt implying they came like that.
He has modded the bottom and obviously sanded the strakes by mistake when doing it.As for the ride pad this is not the right way to go in my opinion.
I would lengthen the outer strakes to 3" from transom,inner ones might be ok as they are but id lengthen those also to roughly where the orriginal outer ones are now.
This is what i would do anyway.
