Trimming it up

Recommended Posts

Sorry guys but I have another one to ask you. If I trim my lower unit up does that help slow the speed? I also have the old 17 pitch prop. Should I change back to the 17 from the 19? This is all new to

Me. I really appreciate the help

It will change the speed. What kind of motor? Changing the pitch from 19 to 17 won't make that much of a difference.

being an i/o i doubt trimming will make that much difference in speed but turning/staying straight will really suck.

Socks will work I run 2 on my boat when I need to slow way down. Buckets will work too, run 1 off each side.

I run them about mid ship maybe a touch closer to the bow. It helps keep the bow down in rough seas. In my signature you can see the the orange buoy on the tow line.

 

Here is a little bigger photo.
