IMO you'd have to be well over-propped with a light boat, light load and flat sea for that to be the problem bogging you down.... unless of course it's massively under propped and you are at max revs with reduced speed. That's why a cheap tach and GPS for speed is crucial to sorting this if you wanted to keep the outfit.
It was fine on your old SIB wasn't it?
In truth I think it's the lightweight nature of the Aerotec that's not suiting you and to an extent I can understand that... I well remember the feel of our 3.5m alloy floor Honwave and if that sort of thing was your ideal then the Aerotec with minimal load would feel flighty.
Didn't you have steering and remotes on your last Zodiac? That would make a massive difference to the feeling of control. Would that setup fit on the Aerotec for a trial?
Yeah prop seemed fine on my last outfit, has a few nicks but only very minor ones, I'll check what it has on it later.
I guess theres an app I can download to my phone for speed ? Any recommendations or is that just not accurate enough ?
General question, I noticed a long time ago that there is what looks like a cigarette lighter socket on the front of my outboard, is that what it is ?
I think it is just how much lighter it is, someone else described it well, they said the floor felt bubbly as the waves hit. They also said that they are now used to that feeling which gave me some hope.
I do have an old set of remotes, could probably do with some tinkering and I prefer tiller and less set up.
I saw your post about your name sticker, if you need anymore (unlikely I know) send me a message, you've been so helpful to me, I'd be really happy to have just made you one and up and posted it for free
