Water damage is a terrible thing to go through; however, it helps to know that Plumbers FL Services will be there quickly and efficiently when needed. Christian and Carlos make a great team. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They are a credit to the Plumbers FL, and I’m glad they were here to help me. Thank you Christian and Carlos and the Plumbers FL crew. I always call Plumbers FL, and recommend their services to neighbors and friends. Thank you.
We have used Plumbers Florida many times in the past. The technicians are always pleasant, professional and do outstanding work. Our last experience was with William who went above and beyond our expectations. His communication skills and advise were spot on. As well as just a really, really nice man!!!
Made this vid for a friend in Maine but it’s functional advice for any express cruiser owner.
Inverting the trim tabs on your express cruiser will improve/shorten planning by as much 15-30 percent. The angled edges should face downward(if they aren’t already) and can be done by simply driving out the hinge pin, removing the ram mounting bolts and inverting the tabs. Removal of the mounting plate from the transom is completely unnecessary.
With a single engine these boats will also perform much better by considering portion control (hey it’s not a houseboat or pontoon so leave the cast iron pots/pans at home) and positioning as much weight into the forward section of the boat while only storing lighter eqt in the stern as much as possible. Don’t forget to keep only the fluids needed in the engine compartment and stern. A full waste tank weighs hundreds of pounds in the stern as does a full water tank and fuel tank. We store our large cooler amidship in the huge void under the galley sink too. With very comfortable seats right at the stern, everybody plunks their kiester right there but you should tactfully reposition your “larger” passengers forward when getting up on plane which will help immensely. Lure them forward with sodas, chips and dip 😉 .
Coming out of the hole you should have the drive trimmed fully down along with the tabs, roll on the throttle and as the boat starts to get on step pull up the tabs and the boat should add considerable speed, then ease the drive out/up just until it starts to porpose and then tap it slightly down.
These all add up to a much nicer ride and a far superior time out of the hole. Have a great season, Mike m/v TikiHut
