Yeep. My fx21 will do this if I make. If you work the trim like you should be it doesnít happen. Never seen a boat that requires ď0Ē interaction with the trim switch that will get on and off plane without some sort of bobbing.

Itís how they work.

I have a 2018 FX21. When I first started driving it and it would do that. However, after talking to Fain at FunNSun, he explained to me that the trim is very sensitive. When Iím coming off pad, I generally trim pretty much all the way down and then come completely off pad. It never porpoises any more.

Why are you going low speeds? Bass boats are not designed to run effectively for low speeds...they are designed to run at 3/4 to full speed. I see guys all the time hopping their boats when they slow down and it that completely because they do not know how to run their boat. Before letting off the the throttle just trim the motor all the way down and then let off the throttle and no brand of bass boat will hop. You have one of the finest boats on the market so just get with on of the Skeeter demo guys and they will be more than glad to show you how to properly run that FX. Enjoy that awesome boat!


Well.........., there are times when Iím on a new lake that I do not know.......safety. There are times when I want to scan with my 2D but cover allot of ground. There are times when the lake is extreamly rough due to wind or boat traffic, and then there are times when I want to simply enjoy easing out on glass slick water to my spot and drink my coffee in my new boat watching the sun rise without blowing or bouncing coffee into my lap. Lowering the trim all the way down is not the solution. It will bounce with the trip all the way down wether I am lowering down from high speed or easing up on the pad. Driving the boat around 20 to 25 mph is not an option. This is a great boat and I love it but would like this issue resolved. Just wanted input from others with expiernce. My understanding is Yamaha designed the hull to match the motor so you would think that since they have total control of hull design and motor design and rigging, they could resolve this. These boats are knocking on $100k nowadays so I donít think the expectation of having a very versital boat is to much to ask. Maybe they should have an advertising campaign with the tag line, ďSkeeter...:. Never go slowĒ


Being successful is achieving that which you set out to accomplish!

To add to that, I can drive around 20-30 mph in mine without issue, just leave it trimmed all the way down. Below that tho the boat wants to nautually fall off plane so your gonna run into limitations.

I have noticed on my 2016 ZX200 that if I slowly bring the speed up to where the boat is almost level and feather back down slightly, I can run slow and fairly level without the bounce. But it is a very fine adjustment because if I speed up enough to get to "pop" up on the pad at all, it immediately starts bouncing.
