    New (to me) STV ModVP ... handling issues

    Jeff, I never had that problem with the River Rocket, but then again it is a standard lay-up rocket. I also have a 15" mid with the short trim ram, and i also am running 5" of setback. Once i did have the prop shaft 1 5/8 above the pad and i never got a hop, however the handling went completely out the door with the motor that high. The boat would hook pretty badly when you let off the gas at high speeds. Now i run a 32" clever about 1" above the pad and it runs great and the hook problem is gone. Hoever because i have the short trim ram i had to place Transom wedges between the Engine and the Jackplate for more positive trim. The transom wedge i believe is a 5* degree wedge. This helped considerably when getting through the porpoise speed of the STV as well as running down wind. My point is maybe you don't have enough positive trim. I put those transom wedges right before i finished breaking in the motor,so im not sure how it would have handled with out them at high speed. But i can tell you with that short trim ram, I think you need some type of transom wedge, anywhere from 2-6 degrees. I know with my perticular setup the 5 degree wedge worked perfectly and gives me more then enough trim.

    Our River Rocket ran best in my opinion with the coned stock V6 case, however the Sportmaster i had modified by JC Propellers handles just fine on our STV, the boat just sits locked in and as stable as can be at 120+

    hopping

    Maybe trim was to negative?

    Ocean's 2.5xs powered Euro

    Almost done with the rigging a few hours left... should be in the water in a few days

    Ocean's 2.5xs powered Euro

    We might have to put it right on the transom... right now it has 6" of set back... according to the dealer mercury hand book the 2.5xs weighs 450lbs... that might be a little off im sure..(if that is the case its only 75lbs heavier then a 280) but we'll have to try some stuff out.. most likely gonna throw a Hoss 14 1/4 x 30 and stick with the 1:87's for now and see what happens, we'll just have to take it from there..might run great like that.. who knows...but i agree with Randy, perhaps the less set back the better in this case.. I'm tryin to get the boat in the water tomorow night.. not sure if thats gonna happen were swamped with work over here...

    Ocean's 2.5xs powered Euro

    Anthony, The 2.5xs only weighs 450lbs so it shouldnt be all that terrible.. Yes the boat will be available and posted for sale as soon as its finished and dialed in.. I'll keep you guys posted on the performance of the boat...And yes their will be test drives for anyone very interested in the boat as well
