It could be a trim issue, Dolefins could help too and for 20 quid not a pricey test.

I have got some hydrofoils i took of the outboard when i got it!!

How should the trim be setup? Or is it a trial and error sutuation?

Sorry for all the question. Bloody newbies!!

Except that he'll have to drill four holes in his cav plate...

My engine, on the other hand, came supplied with doel fins and holes, thanks to the previous owner. I must pop them on and see what happens. If the OP wants to hold off for two or three weeks (I have an Appointment in Scroatland this w/e) I'll report back before he resorts to the bench drill.

Edit - oh wow - you too. Fair nuff - we'll both test 'em then so!

Hi Mate,
It's trial and error old fruit. Sometimes I have to change my trim depending on how many people I have onboard and I have Dolefins fitted.
Is the prop original? Some props cause peculiar vortexs that push the water in odd directions if they aren't specific to your engine.

Or muck about with the trim pin - changng the angle of the cav plate relative to the direction of travel can make all the difference, and it's a free test.

Just as a sanitry check, you don't have a longshaft engine on there?
