I recently aquired a 98 Fisher FX 19 with a Merc 200 DFI and was wondering about its stance in the water. The bow seems to sit really high in the water. It has a 40 gal gas tank with three batteries. Also the Merc is on a 10" jack plate. On take off the stern really plows in the water as well as coming off plane allowing a lot of water to wash over the stern. Do you think changing to a 5.5" jackplate will help or is it just the way it is? Ill take pictures of the stance tomorrow morning and post them. The gas tank has not had more than 20 gals in it.

I would make sure it's propped right then start looking at weight distribution. You should not have water coming over the transom.
