  3. [Question] Problem getting to plane out.

    I need some help, I have a 21ft checkmate starliner, 200hp merc. 24", 4 blade stiletto. When I get 5 people on board, I can't get the boat to plane out at slower speeds ( 20 - 30 mph). At these speeds with the motor trimmed down and jack plate up, down and in the middle, the bow just bounces.

  8. Single plane vs Dual plane - my results

    GN7 On the Dyno
    I'll keep this short and to the point. With my hyd roller LS1, I was running a Performer RPM and seeing a max rpm of 5800-5850. I made a change to a Super Victor, and with no other engine changes am now seeing a max rpm of 5950-6000. least in my case, a single plane works better.

  12. Is it possible to get on plane with one motor(twin screw)?

    PB Open Water
    I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried to get on plane with one motor on a twin screw boat and what were the results. I've always wondered if say for example you were 20 miles offshore and one motor took a dump would you try it or chance it to get back?
