Outbord engine mounting height.
I own a Ranieri pathfinder 18 feet with a Yamaha 140 V4 two stroke outboard.
I just got concerned and noticed that the engine cavitation plate is roughly 2 centimeters above the v shape of the hull. I also heard that such cavitation plate has to be aligned exactly with the V shape of the keel. Does anyone can tell me if the boat is losing performance due to such mounting height, or worse if any harm is being done to the outboard please??.
I thank you in advance for your openions,
