So here's my boat, Runs fine aside from the fact if im sitting and running I cant see over the bow.... yes i'm short. the bow rides high as you can tell from the curve of the boat. Draft with motor up is about 5" loaded for fishing. with motor down I need near 18" to run. I think my motor is sitting very low.... I am in the process of making a manual jack plate. If this were a standard v hull id know where to start since it not I am at a loss for high I should start. it the anti cav plate 1" above bottom rule still apply? I dont want to go to high as this boat currently handles nasty weather like a champ... your thoughts? new prop will be coming soon so I can change that as well.
