Hmmm, that's odd. But then again, he just re-located his shop a month ago, so, that might have something to do with it.

Try his cell (843) 450-9101. I'm pretty sure that number works.

Mine is a rounded V. Technically it should be shaped like a spoon, hence its name, "spoon".

Um, well, that it a hard question to answer. Most of the successful builds I have seen have them. Some try without and depending on hull design it may or may not work, then add it as needed. I built mine while doing the install to avoid grafting it on later.

Necessary? With so many different boat hulls and jet ski pumps being used I believe every install is different, some may benefit from one, some may not.
