I did a search here for transom wedges, and found little, so I have a question or two. Here is my situation. When I got my new 6.5 m RC I found I had to have the motor trimmed all the way down, to the max, or I got a gush of water over the transom. This concerned me, as I had no wiggle room to push the bow down when/if necessary. I spoke w/ 'my sales guy' and got a nice 'huh?'. Upon putting some weight in the boat (1200 lbs) I found I can not get over 4K rpm or the water gushes in again. Question 1: Shouldn't a boat be designed so that the motor is not trimmed all the way one way or the other, leaving the owner the option to trim a tad more or less as necessary? Question 2: Are these wedges http://thmarine.com/product.cfm?PRID=35
perhaps an answer? It seems to me that my transom does not have the proper angle to start with. BTW: No weeds/dead seals on the skeg, no damaged prop, elephant trunks are up, etc, and we loaded as much weight in the bow as we could. 1200 lbs does not seem like that much of a load anyway. Opinions?
