* Dirty bottom. it would take over 1/4" to cause that.
* Dirty prop (worse). Would vibrate a lot, but you might not notice without a baseline.
* Engine RPMs. Did it get to full revs?
* Waterline. Is she lower in the water than other 105mcs?

The first is most likely, and it could be that bad. If it is, require that it be cleaned for the survey.

(when asked how he reached the starting holds on a difficult rock climbing problem that clearly favored taller climbers - he was perhaps 5'5")
