Ill be ordering the extension kits in the next week or two. I've been shopping around and the cheapest I've found them is $849 per kit. Are you having similar issues Cayman?

i absolutely love the boat, and the ride. If I can get this hole shot issue resolved I'll probably have it for a long time. Sounds like you had pretty much the same exact boat, except mine doesn't...

I'm definitely not opposed to playing around with props if I can find some. If I remember correctly from my sea trial at WOT the motors were turning 5500 or 5600 rpm. I've only owned the boat for 2...

You won't regret it I can tell you that. Even if this issue is never resolved it's still a great boat that is well laid out and a fishing machine.

If that's the case, I'd definitely love to get it done but $1800 is a little hard to swallow at the moment. Wish I would've done that instead of having the pads re-done.

I did mess with them the last trip out and it seemed to help a little, however I discovered that one motor had a trim/tilt leak so I couldn't play with motor trim at the same time. Got the leak fixed...

If memory serves me right, we hit about 5500 during the sea trial at WOT. I will admit though the boat has the old style gauges from the previous motors and half of them don't work. A smartcraft...

I just sent a message to Bay for pricing on the kits. They do seem pretty easy to do. So if I decide to go that route, I would then need to raise the motors to highest mounting holes?

Wish it was that easy for mine. I don't have the slider on the lower mounting bolt. I'd have to completely remove the motor and use a lift to reposition.

Thats not too bad. Is this something that needs to be professionally installed? Or is it pretty simple for someone who's mechanically inclined?

Ive heard those are great props and may be what I end up doing. Maybe those are built for better handling of the turbulent water the stepped hull creates.

Thats my issue to a T. It really doesn't like to go under 30mph. I'm pretty confident it's not a hub because as you mentioned it probably wouldn't plane out at all. The more I read the more I think...
