This adjustment that can be done that is not in the installation instructions is to make slight adjustments to the angle of the foil. I did this by adding a stainless flat washer or two between the foil and the cavitation plate. This is at the two front bolts that hold the foil to the plate. Longer stainless bolts may be needed to allow these bolts to properly thread through the locking portion of the nut without over tightening. That very small difference of the thickness of the washer can and will make big performance changes to your boat. Do not eliminate the soft flat washers that came with the foil and otherwise follow the mounting instructions that came with the foil.
I have fine turned the foil angle with great success on a 16' runabout 110 HP and on a 14' aluminum fishing boat 25 HP.
This is referring to a foil that is bolted to the plate without the use of the optional "clip" mounting adapter.
"Will it help with prop cavitation?"
Yes. Prop cavitation/ventilation where the propeller takes in air on turns is damaging to your motor and lower unit. The crescent-shaped of the SE Sport helps to hold water more firmly around the prop than any other foil on the market.
All sizes that have a cavitation plate larger than 5 inches wide, usually 40 horse power and up. Because the mounting holes on the SE Sport 300 are 4 inches apart, right to left (center to center), a 5 inch or smaller cavitation plate leaves less than ½ inch of metal from hole to the edge of the plate. The SE Sport 200 is recommended for cavitation plates 5 inches or less.
This never caused problems later.
Instead of a foil the best sulution to the problems that a foil might solve is to use automatic trim tabs. The foils are best when you have a hull design that will not allow the installation of trim tabs.
