180 Prov 150 Yamaha V-MAx

Postby nick » Sun Aug 10, 2008 3:18 pm

I recently bought this blazer and I am having problems coming out of the hole. Lower unit is under warranty. Mechanic owned boat and changed the gear ration to 1.86. Also, with Tempist plus 26.

When I leave the launch with no water in livewell - comes right out of the hole. If any extra weight is in the boat, it is slugish. I know it is mostly me knowing where to hold the trim, but sometimes it is very aggrivating and embarrassing.

The boat also has 18 inches of jack plate, a 4 inch block, and an 11 inch block with a 4 inch block attached to it. Is there maybe to much jack plate? Is it me not knowing where to hold the trim?

Another problem I am having is that when I am on the top end, the bow of the boat seems to walk back and forth and scares me. Any ideas?

first of all i would remove both 4" blocks and get the motor closer to the boat. you should see a better hole shot and top end handling.

18in. of set back is over kill. Whoever owned the boat before had it set up for top end only. As far as the bow moving from side to side, that is Chine walk, and you will need seat time to learn to drive the boat. Check to make sure you have your load balanced in the boat, this will help, and you have to learn to feel the boat when it starts to walk and make small corrections by turning the steering wheel to the left.
