I think you will find you will create porpoising. Hook keeps the nose down, removing that hook will make you boat nose bounce up and down while traveling down the lake. my 04 X-10 did it all the time and was extremely aggravating. I tried all types of weight distribution to get rid of it, finally got rid of the boat instead!
