Roger i think your correct most of my improvement was from lowering the motors. There is a improvement in ride and much better self bailing with batteries moved up. My WOT speed now is around 33 mph with 5200 rpm's, still low but better then before. What prop's are you using? Thanks Ed
That suggests you are still over prop’ed. What is the current prop? Blades? Cup & pitch?

I'll have to check next time I'm at the boat. They are the stainless steel props that the prior owner put on the boat and I've never had a reason to change them so I haven't paid much attention to the specs.
