Make up a few shims from 10mm to 40mm and experiment re the splash. It's a very random thing and outboard specific.
BTW others may not have found exactly the same but I've found the transom splash far worse one up or with light loads.
Yeah I've been doing loads of wheelies and donuts lol
It's not that, it's hard to describe, it's a bit like torque steer on a car, it kinda pushes and pulls around oddly. Hence thought it could be part to the engine splash issue.
Thanks for the response.
I think adding some weight might be best. I should end up with a spare bow bag (zodiac said they'll send a replacement but I can keep the old) maybe I'll look to modify the broken one in a way to load it up with weight. It seems to rest on the floor rather than hang so guess I won't over load d rings, will really check this though.
