They had it in the next hole down so up an inch higher than mine. Any thoughts? Do I go up one hole or two?
I had performance problems with mine when it was low, all sorted when I moved it up.
Mine is inline with cav plate but others I have seen are slightly higher.
One thing I found is you need to play around with ballast up front or console position after moving outboard.
