View Full Version : Strut and rudder question

05-30-2017, 10:07 PM
I'm new boats. I bought MG V3. I been reading on setup, but seems the setup info is out there is for V2 MG/BJ.

I watched chief's blueprint videos and he mention to set the strut height .125" I'm assuming that still apply the V3's? I bought OSE strut.

I'm guessing I need to raise my strut height as mentioned? This flat on the counter.

For the rudder... it need to be 90*? Not kicked back like it is?

Yes, raise your strut a little, while keeping it level, for now. I ran my V3 Blackjack with the rudder reasonably close to 90*.
