Water spraying everywhere
Hello all I am in need of help. I just picked up my new 2014 hurricane 188 with yamaha f150. I love the boat but am a little concerned on the performance and the way it handles. The first problem is that I get a lot of spray off of the lower part of the engine. It is so bad that you get wet sitting in the back seat on a flat calm day. When I got home I looked to see what hole the motor is mounted in and it was in the top hole so the motor was as low as it could go down. I put a straight edge on the keel of the boat and it was 2 and a half inches above the cavitation plat. The second concern I have is it seems hard to steer mostly to stbd. I have a hydrolic steering system installed. I have been boating for over twenty five years but have never owned a hurricane. We looked at other hurricanes in the river today and they didn't have the spray behind them. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance Allan
