I'll have to av it then, it would be more economical as well, dont you adjust it so the boats riding with the least poss amount of resistance for the sea your in. I cant bloody wait, my wifes pregant , i'm going on holiday and all I keep thinking about is tilt and trim , and hopefully getting some bass....... to feed the new born , thats the only reason I'm getting the boat. Honest. Nutrition, thats it.

If running with the weather ie waves are following you/breaking behind you trim out so the bow rides higher which helps to stop the bow from stuffing into the waves in front.
If running into the weather trim the engine in so it keeps the bow down, this helps to stop you from flying off the top off every wave.
