Tickled Pink engine was set very high, great for top speed tends to cause mild cavitation when manouvering in a chop or when turning and applying power from a standstill. Also means that you lose an element of control of the bow as there is less effect caused by tilt and trim. I have had jacking plate fitted and will see trial on Wednesday. Hope this will allow top speed and low speed control, fingers crossed.
