hi!!
my name is Philippos i'm from Greece and..

i recently bought a falcon 700 rsr and i am having some problems making it go smooth without banging all the time even in smooth water!
i realized that it has shorter engine that it should .. the anticavitation plate is about 6cm above the hull bottom so i installed a power lift but it couldn't lower the engine because the hydraulic steering will hit the transom. Now when running the boat the anticavitation plate is about 4 cm above the water! i was told to cut the transom (its flat it doesnt have a cut) to bring the engine to the right height and that this is a standard procedure for this boat due to construction error in the mold!
recently i found that with this setup runs smoothly when having 2-3 people in front of the console! the engine is Long e-tec 200 small block with a Viper prop 21 pitch! it reaches about max 45 knots with 5 people on board and 100ltr fuel in 4900rpm (has to reach 5300-5800rpm)!

i dont want speed i mostly seek smooth rides!
do you have any suggestions to have smoother ride???
do you suggest another prop??
generally any suggestions how to correctly setup this boat???
anything relevant about the boat i would appreciate it because here in Greece its very rare boat...

thanks!

Well you dragged this one up from the grave .......... I would guess that it isn't an error in the mould, but rather it was designed for a longer engine than the one fitted!

If that is the case then change the motor or cut the transom - have you tried different props? They can have an amazing difference in handling?

Changing a couple of props is easier than cutting your boat up!

sure! but i feel that the boat does not have a "grasp" with the water, in the slightest wave the prop will be out of the water because the engine is too high! also i dont have trim! does a different prop going to fix all these?
