    Stock ride plate?

    Full fuel load?

    Do you trim up when running slowish in those water conditions?

    Well, sometimes water does come up over the bow, but most of the time I manage to ride over the wave crests without a lot of high splash.

    I do have the RiDE motor trim lever extension (made by Worx?) which is sold in the GH online store. So I can trim up higher (and lower) than stock.

    I also have the extended steering nozzle (sold in GH store) which improves steering response and may slightly improve trim effectiveness.

    I get a little water over the bow but I don’t care. It helps to sit on the back seat section at idle if you really don’t like it
