Re: Adding Hydro Foil to Yamaha 8 HP 4 Stroke on 27 Catalina

If anything I would look at the angle the motor is sitting at and play with the tilt pin setting

Some boats just stern squat as they reach displacement speed I know my Cal 29 starts squatting at about 5 knots

Its silly take the Cal above 5.5 as at 6.5 knots it squats so BAD the scuppers let in so much water your standing angle deep and the fuel burn about doubles

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
