Will the height of your motor effect how your boat handles and top speed? I have a 99 Bumble Bee 290 Pro Vee and a Mercury 200 efi and it does not have hydraulic steering, the steering wheel about rips out of my hands at WOT. I also can only hit around 63 mph (6000 rpms) with one person and the worst hole shot I have ever seen in a bass boat. I am running a 25 pitch 3 blade. I feel that getting my jack plate just right will make it handle better by getting more of the boat out of the water and increase my hole shot. (BTW others with the same set up are getting 70-75mph http://www.bassboatcentral.com/bumblebee.htm ). Any ideas of lowering or raising jack plate?
