Hi, I am looking for some advice on a small problem I am having with a boat we just bought. We picked up a 2004 Lowe 1654TN (it's a tunnel hull) with a 115 horse Evinrude jet. It's set up with counsole steer and has all of the neat gadgets. Anyway, when I get it planed out I get a lot of water/spray comming into the boat over the stern. I've played around with the trim and that does not really help much at all. I'm getting about 5 gallons plus of water in the boat on short runs like from Deshka Landing to the mouth of the deshka river. It's not that big of deal as long as I don't forget to turn on the bilge pump for a few minutes when I get to where I am going. I had a problem with porposing but I fixed that by putting a few bags of gravel up in the bow compartment (about 240 pounds worth). I admit that the 115 is a little big for this hull but it flat out gets up and goes. Does anyone know if there are any kind of strips of platic that can be put across the stern to deflect water spray or is this a bigger problem with the set up of the motor on the hull? Any advice will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance-
