Your outboard owners manual should tell you the recommended mounting position. Usually they give a range in relation to how many inches the center of the prop should be below water line. Or, they might specify by refering to how deep the anticavitation plate should be.

If your motor is too deep, you might have a tendancy to plow a bit, might not exaust efficently, etc. Too shalow, you'll not get the power you want.... etc. But, if I were you, I would not worry too much about a silght err on the side of deep. In bouncy seas, you want that prop in the water. If you don't have the owners manual, look on line at the manufactures site.... they probably have it on line. ...just my two cents
