I have a 18 cp an set up info seems harder to come by. ive done a search and info on the 19 is excellent. My current set up has the motor 25" from the transome, jetaway, handhole cover half out, 2 degree backcut shoe 1/16 above keel, plate at 4.5, blue reducer in diverter, berkeley droop , ab ss detailed impeller that i spin 6,500, and a mpd loader. I would like to get the nose to run dryer. I ran a 2* down wedge which really loosened up the ride an got the ass up. took wedge out an cranked up the plate and still would run flat an kind of wet. what kind of set up are some of you guys running in your 18s. any suggestions to dry this thing up would be appreciated.
