yeah i get all that! but in general do we not trim our engines down to push the nose down to overcome the bow wave.... then we trim up for optimum performance (sea dependant)
SOOO if you have tabs to lower the nose and overcome the bow wave then any reason not to leave the engine trim at optimum performance set point if it dont vent on acceleration?
