Re: 2 inches makes a difference

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


there are 2 stages to a trim and tilt full trim is the firs stage then it goes into tilt mode that mode will not sustain any power load and thrust from the motor will force it back to the trim ram position. some folks hold on that trim button to that point and get them bigass rooster tails. Thats all wasted power. The thrust is going up not back at that point.
Full trim is when the tach climbs and speed increases to the past full trim point or over trim. Past full trim or over trim is when the tach climbs and speed either doesnt increase or falls off. Water pressure can be affected at that point also. Some boats like my Bullet run best at neutral trim. That means the pad and cavplate are level with respect to each other. some boats run better with some positive trim like Rangers skeeters and tritons. Keep that tail even or just below the cowl and your good to go

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


another trick I like to do when going WFO and alone is trim to max speed and rpm then tap it down a click or 2. this will tend to raise the stern and get it higher on the pad. I've had that sucka where the only thing in the water was 2 inches of pad and the LU bullet.
talk about a balancing act. definitely a pucker factor of 8 plus

SBG,The easiest way to explain how to tell what full trim is,with your boat on the trailer and motor trimed down,start trimming it up and when it changes from the slow trim to the high speed trim that is "full trim". The high speed trim is called "Tilt".

That's why they call it "trim and tilt".

If you raise your motor into the tilt mode in neutral and put it in gear and give it gas it will go down to the full trim position.

Does any of this make sense?

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


Oh yeah that makes alot of sense. I just wasn't sure to begin with what yall were meaning before. Thanks for explaining it to me.
I don't see how you can hear it go to full trim cause I can't hear nothing but wind and engine noise when I'm runnin. emoticon
Guess I just need to keep an eye on the trim guage and see where the tilt kicks in on the gauge. That way I'll know.
Thanks guys!

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


well ive been busy hear latly fishin tournys and had 2 fish die on me so i been putin onother 800gph rec. pump in.... dirk all though the speed isnt changing when i droped the plate i got quite abit more lift not as much as the gade but more than what i had just about every time ive moved the plate somthings changed im gona run the gade next time out at this setting and see how it runs. the boat runs good when
 the hull gets alittle air underneath every time i got in heavy chop i would rapidly climb to 48 mph... the gade even at the higher setting was the same way it would run 52 in heavy chop i just need to get allitle more air under the boat.

Something just don't seem right to me.My 18' Nitro 482 would run 52 with a 115 @ around 5700 with a 21 or 22 laser II.( I can't remember which one)Still a long way from a 140 Hp with a 24" prop.

That was with no jackplate.

ur preachin to the quire (i dont know how to spell that) nitro . it runs about what it should tourny loaded when im in rough water it runs around 52 with the gade if air gets underneath the hull it runs great the more heavy the chop gets u can feel and see the bow start rising rapidly itl get up on its pad and run great but in smot water it wont do crap.

Re: 2 inches makes a difference


sounds water logged.Take that thing to the rock quarry and weigh it.I don't know what it is suppose to weigh but I'm sure Dirk would have a close guess.
