Is raising the motor the only thing that you've changed? And I assume your steering is nice and tight?

The cavitation plate on the engine should be roughly level with the bottom of the vee on the hull when fully down.
Is it?

Glad to help ! Remember steel has a higher density - sash weights or some lead - smaller loads to carry - although sand is cheaper..

Must admit it has really pissed me off,,,

Lucky enough I can get it back out before Wales meet and iron out the bugs,,, does look more like a weight issue now though,,,all that spray up the back is not right and must slow the rig down as well as put un needed drag on engine mounts not to mention fuel consumption,


Again thanks guys,,
