Triming problem

Hi all I would like if someone ever experienced this kind of problem.
I have a 17.5ft RIB and it have a Honda BF90 Vtec I am having a problem with trim when I pick up speed and revs and try to trim the motor for a little bitt the motor is like to get out of water and loose speed instead of gaining speed It is consuming a little bitt of fuel too. I don't have any problem to plane as if I get the throttle to WOT i am on plane and it dose not get more than 4sec to plane. I am thinking that I may have a small prop the prop is 13"x19pitch I cannot try to check if it have the right pitch by rev as I told you as soon as I try it get out of water rev a lot and loos speed. Btw when ever I tried It was loaded with 5 persons. what do you think?. thanks

Motor set too high?
Prop sounds about right
Cav plate normally should be 1/2 above bottom of hull when straight

that prop should be 21to23 pitc

Take two horizontal pictures, with one from astern and one from the side, then post them up. Be as close to level with the boat bottom as you can.

Sure sounds to me like the engine is too high.

I have checked the cav plate and it is in proper height. I don't know how to attach the picture. so I think that I will have to try a higher pitc prop. if you can tell me how I will upload pict. thanks

To upload a picture, click 'manage attachments', then 'choose file' and search for the image, assuming its on your desktop or picture folder, etc. Once you've found the picture, select it, then click 'upload'. Allow it load, then close the window, and select 'preview post'. If all is well, hit reply.

I have a Honda BF90D on my 5.3m Humber destroyer. The Honda propeller supplied with the engine was a 19" pitch. It ventilated easily when trimmed up, just like you describe.

I changed to a Honda 21" propeller. This was a little better, but the engine was definately over propped and I could not get maximum revs.

I then fitted a Solas Rubex 3 19" pitch propeller. Problems solved. Max revs. Able to trim up to maximum and rarely get any ventilation.

Hope that helps.
