I did a lot of research before buying and I picked the SE Sport 300 Hydrofoil because it seemed to have the best reviews from what I could find. I found that some people do not like hydrofoils and many more think that they are great.

In considering a hydrofoil to improve something about your boats performance we should keep in mind that these add on devices are to make up for deficiencies in our hulls design. It is the law of physics that when you improve in one area you will usually lose in another.

From what I have read self adjusting trim tabs should work better but there is no place to install them on my boat because of the way the hull is designed.

I wanted something to stop my boat from porpoising and I was hoping to increase fuel economy as so many of the reviews that I read said that it would. The Sport 300 corrected both of the problems. My boat seems to now be about 2 mph slower at full throttle so the hydrofoil did cut my top speed. At the same time it increased fuel economy by 40%. I would have never believed it possible. I can accept that trade since I normally do not want to run at full throttle anyway. Another benefit is that I can now make sharp high speed turns without a cavitation problem. I can also now keep it on plane at a slower speed than I could have before without the hydrofoil.

The fuel consumption is based on the amount of fuel used to travel the same distance with the Hydrofoil installed as it was without it. All other variables being the same on a lake. With my boat, once on plane fuel economy seems to be about the same at slow speed or at high speed.

My boat is a 16' open bow runabout with a 110 HP Evinrude outboard motor. Total listed empty weight of the hull and motor is 1520 pounds.

If you are trying to figure out if a hydrofoil could help with the performance of your boat. I hope that this will help you. With the high price of gas at the fuel dock the Hydrofoil 300 has already paid for itself in the first five uses of the boat. I think that it would also improve a boats performance that did not have a problem to correct.

The Bad:
I have a 20 ft bass boat with a Johnson 150 on the back, I didn't gain any advantage out of the hole. The prop still blows out if I get too aggressive with the throttle and I didn't gain any time to get on plane. To top it all off, I lost about 5 mph on the top end... too bad.

The Good:
The foil did make a noted difference in my turning radius and crispness of response. It was suprememly easy to install and seems to be very well made. I haven't used it long enough to be able to vouch for any efficiency increases.

The Summary:
This product seems like it would be a fantastic purchase for someone who may have bought too much boat for their first time. It tightens up the steering control and in my experience brings the top end down just a touch. Stability and forgiveness... not a bad deal on the water.

          I bought this product for my 20ft pontoon boat ant it is awesome. I ant Bragg about it enough, it does everything it says it's going to do. I was hanging trouble with the boat getting out of the water witha few extra people on it and now it has no problems at all. I would highly recommend this product.

          Comments about Sport Marine SE Sport 300 Hydrofoil, Fits Engines Over 40 HP:

          I absolutely love this hydrofoil! I have a 1994 4.3L V6 chaparral 1830 SST 18' bowrider and I was having problems getting out of the hole when I had more than 3 people in the boat. It was fine with just me and another friend, but any more weight and it was just too under powered and I would always have to sit people up front just to plain out. So I read the reviews on this hydrofoil and figured it could only help, if anything. Went out on the lake a few weeks back and tested the boat without the foil and 6 people on board. Then pulled it out of the water and installed the foil. (With a cordless drill, I did it at the dock in about 15 minutes) Then I took it back out on the same lake, with the same people, under the same conditions. What a difference!! My hole shot improved dramatically, it virtually eliminated porpoising, and my turns were much tighter. I did notice then, as well as a few times later where I've taken it out with just me in the boat, that I lost about 2 mph off my top speed. However that isn't even close to being a concern when I look at the vast improvements it made in the other areas that my boat lacked. I don't know why boat makers don't make this standard equipment. If there's any question about this product, buy it! You won't be disappointed.

              The sport clip allows you to install the hydrofoil without drilling any holes. If you choose to not use the clip then you are also choosing to drill holes in your caviataion plate.

              A:

              THE MOUNTING HOLES ON THE SE SPORT HYDROOIL ARE 4-1/4" APART (FRONT TO BACK/CENTER TO CENTER). As long as you have enough space to drill the holes in your cavitation plate then you should be fine, but you will not be able to use the sport clip with your volvo engine to get around drilling the holes. The sport clip is just not compatible with those engines, but the hydrofoil by itself would be ok.
