Hey all - recently acquired a 1995 21' 5", dual console Cobra Viper bass boat. I was looking for a "garage queen" and found a very nice boat that is now mine. It's got a 2001 Yamaha X66 series 225 Vmax on it. Will someone please give me some refresher tips on trimming it after the hole shot. My last boat was a 21 ft Skeeter with a Vindicator 200, but this is a different animal. I just want to know what to look for rpm vs speed when trimming. Has a hot foot w/ blinker trim. I only had it out once due to rainy weather, before I had to return to my job in Alaska for my 2 month rotation. Will get it out and do some fishing and familiarization when I'm home, late July. I am curious about one thing. When it's choppy out (2-3 ft chop) what's the best technique in a bass boat???....keep the speed up and trim the motor was up to skip over the tops or slow down, take the beating and suck it up? Smooth water is not a problem and with hydraulic steering, this thing is a breeze. Just looking for some general finesse tips on trimming and also what to do when conditions are not smooth and perfect. Thanks in advance,...I appreciate it and so does my back !!

If ya can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
