It would be like installing an elevator in an outhouse. If you want a better hole shot get a bigger motor or leave one of your buddies and his stuff at home or buy the Gambler that's for sale.
A jackplat will help kiddo, but 5200 sounds like you need to raise your motor or go down a pitch...i was thinking about getting 1,cant afford a hydrolic one,i was looking on bbc and i can find a 6 inch slidemaster for around 200,good deal,im sure stickbait will know more,im just looking 4 one for a little better hole shot and maybie being able 2 spin a 22p turbo
im at full trim i mean i know i cant go more,guess ill buy a 20 p or a 21p 4 bladeA jackplat will help kiddo, but 5200 sounds like you need to raise your motor or go down a pitch...
yeas i do,i have an overheat alarm,i know,im not fully trimmed to a "blowout" stage but its all it has.Full trim can make your boat run slower. Check to see if you have engine mounting holes that will allow you to raise the engine on the transom. Don't get it too high you can lose water pressure and overheat it.
i wanted to get a plate and see if i can run a bigger pitchIf your only turning 5200, why do you want to go up in pitch?
46.6 3 guys loaded 51 empty just mehow fast is ur boat running right now?
im not saving to go 15 more hp,my boat is rated for a 130 hp i have a 115,it is as big as im going till i hydrotec it in the end of next julyI would agree go down in prop size and save for a bigger motor, sell your motor and take the combined money you have saved and from the sell of the motor and buy a bigger one. You can nickle and dime it all you want, jack plate here, pitch there, but trust me you wont be satisfied until you get a bigger motor. Do it right and save the 200 for a plate in the bank and if you save your butt off you could have a nice flashy big motor by spring.
yeah,my bday is in july,i am planning on going hydrotec thenWhy dont you save for the hydrotec? Is your birthday in july?
+1 to that!!so you sold a 40mph boat to get 46 mph boat? correction you still have the 40 mph boat........i dunno bude sounds like your SOL unless down the road you save and sell your skeeter for a bigger ride. I wouldn't waste the money on a plate with a 115 on it. better things to spend 200 bucks on in this economy than on a plate with no great reward
