Interesting! Just out of curiosity. How did the new changes alter the performance? Any noticeable changes in cruise, WOT speed,? I assume the stern does not "squat" or sit down as bad while under a load or planning off? Regards..

WOT is a bit low with my props: 4800. I am going to play with the props next season. The boat goes to the plane without any hump, at 10 knots. Mid range cruise is 27 knots. Maximum speed with full front tank and 1/4 aft and 5 passengers was 39 knots ( water temperature +30c , ambient +37c). The boat is better balanced now, does not need trim tabs and we moved them to another boat. The boat with the extension installed is less sensitive to the weight distribution, I think that is affected by the additional displacement. We are having a problem with the cables and Mercury is working on the issue. Love the torque of the 150s in mid range.

I will send some pictures as soon as I am at my computer.
