    RE: center of gravity

    OK mono's are 1/3 of the length from the transom NOT end of hardware, cats are more forward like 35% hydro's/riggers the CoG should be at the cable coupler.or turn fin area. tunnels I have no ideal as I don't run one. but I have launched one and the CoG is less than 1/3 Remember their are 2 CoG left and right also Or don't keep pipe, fuel and batteries on one side. even weight disbursement. move fuel tank to help CoG
