Anyone have a Renegade with a 60 Etech? I have a PowerTec 15 pitch 4 blade and it seems to have too much trouble getting a good hole shot unless I have someone jump up front. The nose shoots up and the boat just bogs. It runs about 33 mph @ 5600 rpms which is not too bad for this set up but it just seems like I should be able to jump up more easily and without stacking the front deck. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure a Yamaha F70 would do the trick but this motor only has 140 hrs on it so I'd like to see if I can make it work.

Thanks for the input. I had a second prop that I thought was the same exact prop collecting dust in my garage and noticed it was vented. I threw it on and now the boat planes instantly with tabs up or down. HUGE difference.
