With the sincerest respect to all posters, I don’t understand why some of you guys are willing to suggest that the dealers that create these types of issues can...

By the book:

1. First 2 hours: Run at varied rpms up to 4500 and at WOT 1 minute every 10 minutes.

2. Next 8 hours: OK to run at WOT as long as not for more than 5 minutes at a time.

Thanks for the feedback to all. We got a bit off topic which was my fault for delving into the specific challenges on my lake. My primary focus was to try to find out what types of waters you guys...

Lots of info out there, just Google it. I opted for the 300 V8 instead of the 350 L6 on my rig (there is no 350 V8). Some may say it was foolish not to max out the HP (generally I would...

I appreciate all the feedback. Unfortunately the only time Lanier is like glass is about ~3+hours after sunset after all the boat traffic leaves. It will occasionally get a consistent chop that you...

All the lakes by me are dammed river system impoundments. It’s not like up north. They all get a lot of boat traffic so my other options aren’t much better, if at all. I never go out on the lake on...

I put Lenco power trim tabs on my 215X. With the stepped hull it was a challenge, I was limited in the size that would fit. Lenco said they thought I was the first one to try their tabs on that rig....

Triton Deluxe Seat Question - 2020FH

It’s possible. There was a similar rumor about the 215X. There’s another thread somewhere where I and another 215X owner took detailed measurements of our respective hulls. He had a 2008 and I had a...

I did it on my old Terrova. Very simple, no issues, but Spot Lock simply does not work well on these older motors. I ultimately purchased an Ulterra and the Spot Lock is so much better, night and day...

Are you saying someone told you that Triton added additional hook to the hull of the 2020 216FH models, so the 2020 model year has more hook than prior model years? Do you mind me asking who told you...

I went with the Air Wave pedestals. Not much more expensive, slightly better reviews, and I was more comfortable with the design (lack of rotation).

The Bravo LT should work well. That would likely be what I...

I would never run a 3-blade prop on a 216FH, but that’s just me. I’m running a 24p Bravo FS on mine with a 1.85:1 geared 300 Verado. Your ProXS is 1.75:1, so that would roughly translate to a 22p on...

You need to provide more info (WOT speed, rpms, current motor height), but regardless I don’t see a Tempest working well on this rig.
