I bought a boat used.... that was mistake 1. But I have a feeling the motor (2006 merc optimax 20inch shaft) might be too short. I was not able to plane out so I upgraded the 6inch jackplate for a 10inch. At plane I'm shooting a big tail. I have to bring the motor down since I found the cav plate is about 1 inch above water at plane. But now my hydraulic ram is getting pinched when trimming full up for stow. What kind of hull is this and how do I measure it.
