I have a bit of a problem. i took my boat out for a test run the other day./

It is a zodiac 380 rib with a 1980 20hp 2 stroke. When trimed at 2nd hole i get alot of splashing over the transome. When trim at 3rd hole it is purfect with one person no splashing but with 2 people i start to porpose but still no splashing.

i thought about maybe rasing the motor an 1in or 2in it seams pritty low in the water. i might try out one of thoes hydrofoils on the motor.
