New to the forum and need some help, I've got a 15' tunnel hull pathfinder with a 40hp on it. My issue is when i give it throttle to jump out of the hull the boat squats real bad and the motor sounds like its bogging down and almost at half throttle, plus the boat just does not want to jump up with me and one extra person. Now once the boat gets on plain the motor revs up and the thing takes off like a rocket. No I'm not the first owner and did not mount the motor plus the motor does NOT have a trim and tilt motor, just the assist for towing the boat on the trailer. once you give it some throttle in the water the motor kicks all the way down. now i do plan on either grabbing a trim and tilt for it or a jack plate with a trim and tilt built into it to help with the ride and the hop issue I'm having. but I'm just curious if anyone else has had an issue like this and if its actually the position of my motor and a trim and tilt would help the issue or its too big of a prop because like i said. once the boat gets on plain the motor revs up and sounds like its at its max potential and the things speeds up like a rocket.
