Anyone with experience of Bombard DB500 with 50hp engine?

I have a new Bombard Explorer DB500 with Evinrude e-tec 50.
When running at speeds above 25knots, the water splashes a lot from the rear tubes and onto the engine.
The engine are raised on the transom about 10cm.
Anyone knows if the Bombard hull generally creates a lot of water spray or if the engine shall be lowered (or raised)?

We have bombard 640 Explorer and it does exactly the same. Just try trimming the engine up a few degrees when you are up at speed and the spray will disappear.
