Just wanted to update the thread, I raised the engines one hole and did some testing and found the boat handles best when my Suzuki gauges read...
He says the boat handles great until you try and push over 30 then it’s a handful. He likes to cruise below those speeds. Pretty much every owner...

I have moved weight forward and raised the engines one hole but still the boat does not like to go much more than ~28-30 without getting very...
I appreciate all the help!

I purchased the boat after being converted to outboards.
I believe the largest Diesel that was put in was a 300hp diesel, Some boats came from...
