Engine mount Searider 5,4

Hi,
i have the SR5,4 with the Yam 75HP premix. The caviation plate is in line with the keel.
When driving , there is too much spray from the engine. I think it is too deep.So i have a top speed of 60km/h with 5200 revs. Prop is a 13 1/2 x 17p
How do you have the engine mounted?

Mike

Hi,
that means 1 Inch upper the keel?
Do you have experience with the speed?
Mine is a 75hp , but more compression and other ignition. Should also have around 85hp.
Which prop do you use and what are max revs with it?
Thanks Mike

Yes, about 1" above keel.
Max revs approx 5300, using Michigan Wheel Match 19" pitch.
Speed just under 39 knots.
