Re: 1984 15 Sport E-TEC 60 H.O. Mount Height

No one determines the proper engine mounting height by measuring from the keel to the anti-ventilation plate—which is the plate you keep referring to as the “cavitation plate.” No one cares about that distance. It is not important. It is not used in determining proper engine mounting height.

Re: 1979 V-22 Outrage—Slow Fueling

ROGER on “slight incline”—but what way?

For proper fuel flow into the tank the trim on the boat must be down by the stern.

If the trim is down by the bow then fuel remains in the forward part of the tank and tends to block the vent line and slow the flow of new fuel.
