    2006 Optimax

    I have an 06 115 Optimax. Last summer i had a hard time getting up on plane once the water warm up. Once fall came around, it ran ran great again. Now I am repeating the process. It plowing water for about 50 yards than getting on plane. Once on plane, it runs fine. It idles fine. What is the cause of this?

    Thanks
