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

Let's be sure what the problem is. Where is the water level on the outboard when the boat is at rest? Is it where it should be?

What shaft length is this o/b? Normally sailboats use the longest available, extra long, so that there is room for some wave action, squat, etc. It also makes the controls easier to reach.
