I also am a new owner of a Blazer boat and experienced the same hole shot problem. I eventually had a friend (also a Blazer owner) come out and show me how to drive this boat. My boat wouldn't "blow out" with full throttle but was extremely sluggish from the green light, which was a problem tournament fishing. Something to try: Trim completely down, full throttle, then begin trimming once your bow is at the highest point. It's going to take a few test runs to get this down but when you do it should cut your plane time in half.
