    Default performance with soft top up vs. down

    I have always just figured that my performance would decrease a little with my soft top up but after my last two trips it all most feels like I plane faster and it is easier to stay on step with the top up with the same load. Could this be true or maybe just the conditions (tide direction and strength) that made it seem so.

    Top up, air pushes bow down, on most boats this would make it easier to plane. Same principal as trim tabs.
