    Does a 170TF with a 115 hp motor need a hydrofoil? I kept the old one off of my 75 hp motor but, before I drill holes in my cavitation plate I thought I would try it out first.
    On the other hand, I wouldn't mind your opinions.

    In my opinion, with the right prop, no. If I had holeshot problems, I'd switch to a four blade aluminum prop with a pitch that gets me close to the motor's red line. Better solution than a hydrofoil.
