Good news. Hydrofoil and prop change from aggressive who knows what to OEM 10 degree pitch prop worked wonders. Boat is now getting up on plane quick and runs very smooth but I did lose a little bit of top end speed as best I could tell. Bad news. Hydrofoil is interfering with water pump intake... motor was pumping water at idle but when I got out in the main channel and opened her up the sky opened up as well...in the process of making a quick turn around and getting back to the dock I didn't notice that the motor was not peeing!!!! oooh: Apparently the hydrofoil worked too good, lol. It picked the back end of the boat up enough so basically there wasn't any water flowing into the inlet.:confused2: Fortunatly all is well that ends well. I inspected the water pump and it has a little bit of wear on it so I flipped it over and reinstalled it. It also appeared to have one of the rubber impellers in there running backwards... Sooooo.... it looks like the hydrofoil is going to have to go for now until I can find a way for it to pick up water when the boat is up on plane.:sad2: Will post pics later after I get done dragging my hay baler over to my friends house to get it up and running again.
