In reading another thread a comment was made that a twin rooster tail is indicative of the engine being mounted too low.

Have a 1987 Montauk, 90 hp Yamaha, mounted all the way down.

Here are photos of my wake. Is this a twin rooster tail?

No, those are not what people have been talking about.

It's when you have spray shooting up from the cavitation plate itself as it plows through the surface of the water that you need to raise your motor.

Phil--You are just rubbing it in. Nice to see the photos of Casco Bay. I hope to be in late this week or early next. Did that fuel tank work out for you?

OK--If we're having a picture-of-my-wake type of exchange here, I want to enter this one:

This is a shot off the stern of LHG's OUTRAGE 18 with twin engines, loafing along while you can see me about a half mile astern.

The notes from my trip log for this date say:

08/23/2003 Lund (FUEL) via Thulin Passage and Desolation Sound to Prideaux Haven (LUNCH); thence via Homfray Channel and Waddington Channel to Pryce Channel (STOP); and thence via Raza Passage Calm Channel, Yuculta Rapids, and Gilliard Passage to Mermaid Bay, Dent Island (Dent Island Lodge).

This shot must be leaving Pryce Channel via Raza Passage. All in British Columbia coastal water.

How's that for a wake and some scenery?

Phil if all the way down I would raise 2 bolt holes. You want the cav plate about 1" above keel.

Jim, that's absolutely gorgeous. I hope I'll soon be reading the full story with profuse pictures on the sail logs page! You've been slackin' off, getting in all this pointless boating while letting your stories get 2 years out of date. Shame on you! ;-)
