do you think thats right , it was easy six ft
Tim we noticed that & Sue commented on it. At first glance it looks as if you are trimmed too far out, your bow is very high & you are throwing a (very impressive) "rooster tail" Looking at your boat, you have a lot of weight towards the stern, it might be worth trying to move some weight forward. Check that the engine trim stops aren't set too high, these are the metal pins that go through the engine transom brackets that stop the engines trimming down any further. You might also need to look at lowering your engines if it's possible. What is your WOT & top speed? I'll look through my photos & video & see if I have a shot of you at speed.

Try & post some piccies of the engines in relation to the bottom of the transom & the keel. Is there any adjustment left on the engines to lower them or are they sat on top of the transom?

Something is odd. There's no water in the hull is there? We noticed as we went into the Liffey your bow was really high. Seems to be a lot of weight at the back if the engines are in

Maybe we should ask Willk to split this into another thread before we get carried away & hijack the cruise thread, agreed?

9 mtr humber , nose in the air

there's no water in the hull, there's 2 bilge pumps in the hull that's working , both engines are in and sitting on the transom , there's no bolts or pin that stops it from coming in further on the trim , there's 400 litres of fuel in the front . as some people has also noticed this over the weekend as we went to Ireland , the engines are spraying a large amount of water up in the air and the nose riding high , sorry I don't have any photos but I am sure there's one lurking about ,

Not a problem at all, it just gets a bit confusing if we go wide off topic + the mods get grumpy

How does it handle? Does it feel like the props are blowing out in the rough? If you put the power on from a standing start do the props cavitate like buggery before they grip? What's your WOT & top speed? questions questions
