    trim with extension boxes questions

    i have to trim further per the indicators since I have added boxes but it seems everyone else needs less trim. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Theres a hole in the indicator and the indicator rod..Put a 1/8" drill bit in it and put it up against your drive retighten. Drive full down

    "About" is more like it you stuborn Irishman! LOL.

    Best thing to do is get the straight edge and measure the tabs flat with the bottom of the boat...then tick them down to touch the end of the straight edge and mark that on the indicators...then do the same with the drives....gives you a good base line of the "sweet spot" so to speak....

    Well that is where I am running so apparently I am pretty well dialed in on the trim then. Just seems odd that most boats need less trim.
