The engine is placed as low as it can by the dealer. Lifting the engine should solve most of my problems.
A/ That is a fantastic speed for the Medline II - have you measured the speed with a GPS?
B/ The only time that I have heavy steering is when the engine is trimmed 'in' Do you have hydraulic steering?
C/ I have no problem with chine walking - the Medline is very steady.
D/ I have never had a problem with spray - is this comming from the front, sides or rear of the RIB?
