For what it's worth...

My Playmate had a real tendency to porpoise. I bolted a plastic
hydro-foil on the anti-cavitation plate and it worked wonders in my
case. It kept the nose down in almost every condition, and the boat
planed off remarkably fast on hole shots, even pulling a skier. I often
wondered if it didn't cost me little top end, but never went without it

It isn't an expensive experiment, but you will have to drill holes in
the plate to mount it.
