Are you talking about the cavitation plate? If so I have mine off right no and could easily measure it for you.

trim tab , it mounts to the rear .. supra had an original design that mounted under the transom with manual adjustment turn down knobs that flexed the plate to trim the bow
down and in turn shape the wake for a more crisp topside ... i dont know if they called it a cavitation plate or not ... it looks like a wide trim tab to me ...??

Don't know I haven't had it on the water yet... the manual says not to adjust more than 1/2" above level... however the reason I took mine off wasn't just to sand, I too am going to put a hinge on it. Do you need that measurement too?

while you're at it...lol, might as well go hydraulic on that plate. someone was working on that in the mod's section i think. they cut the plate in 2 for l/r balance. not sure what the result was.
