Cheers for that Simon but can I just explain that when Iam standing at the wheel looking forward the bow looks real high that said it might just be the sheernes of it but as for the bow feeling lite that seems to be more of a gut feeling than anything else some one suggested trim tabs would this possable be an answer or even fitting fins to the cavitation plates as some one else suggested or am I just fussing over nothing
PS. finding the optimum trim leval is no proplem its this bow thing that bothers me
