Did you check the engine height/trim etc with regard to feel and flow over the deflector plate etc and try different trim settings to see if this lost the sketchy feel?: ABC Sib-Rib Installation Guidelines.-
What was the speed at WOT with the 25??
I only have a 15 (top speed recorded about 18 kts) but never felt anything less than totally safe in the Aerotec even in pretty lumpy stuff, it is a light boat though and like any SIB needs care in handling especially in windy head seas.
I didn't try any of this, it was good to finally get on the water in something that felt even half acceptable. It wasn't too bad when only one up. Maybe next time.
I sent him up front, he's a bigger chap too, we had up to 5 of us in the boat at one point (two were very small children) and made sure as much of the weight was upfront and even from side to side.
Have no idea regarding speed, need to download an app to my phone, any recommendations ?
At slower speeds it felt fine, I think its just because its so light. There was very little wind yesterday.
