2009 Panga 18 skiff with a 70tlr throwing splash back into rear of boat at WOT and trimmed all the way down at normal load.  The prop is the Yamaha issued.  The motor is mounted on the lowest setting (top holes).  The cavitation plate is approximately 1" above the bottom of the hull sitting on trailer.  While running it appears that the water level at WOT is perhaps, not certain, over the cav-plate.  Anyone experience this?  Suggestions on resolving it?  My plan is to lift the motor up and re-mount on the second hole from the top.  Also, no trim tabs on her.  Thank you for the suggestions!

I believe you are on the right track, motor is probably a little low in the water.  Tabs could help as well.  Here is a link from another site where the topic has been discussed.

Thanks 9ball.  Didn't think I would get a response; seems like this forum may be fading. 
Gratefully,

I have a 90 etec and I have been thinking about a hyrofoil... I have been getting a few splashes and would rather do this then trim tabs

My last boat was a 19 without trim tabs.  Upgraded to a 20SS with trim tabs and I can say, they are well worth the investment.

I have a 20SS with an Etec 115 and trim pads are well worth the expense.
