    Boston Whaler rage 1992 very bad handling!

    I love almost everything about my new little whaler, everything except driving It (unless the water is blank like a mirror)

    The boat bounces on every little wave ,causing it to cavitate every other second.

    What can I do to fix this? Iíve heard trim tabs , pump stuffer, other intake grate etc.

    what works and where can I find parts for it?

    boat info:

    Boston whaler rage 14 1992
    drive train is from Yamaha waverunner 3
    engine is Yamaha 701 x61.

    Trim tabs on the one I had made a huge improvement.

    thanks for input. I've ordered some smart tabs now, if they're not enough, whats the next step? I've found R&D scoop grate. Would that make a big difference on the cavitation?

    I've done a fair amount of testing and modification with my Rage. We now have a FB group just for the 92-93 Yami Rages. Tons of good info there. Ride plate and intake grate mods, as well as getting the motor's torque peak down low, are great ways to be able to control proposing. No trim tabs on mine in these vids, just pump/motor mods.
