01 150 Yamaha "Purchased the boat a couple of weeks ago. In the process  
            VMax of doing engine run in.  While running 3000 rpm at approx.  
  35-40 mph with the trim all the way down, the boat begins  
  to porpoise badly. Any attempt to bring the trim up only  
  makes the porpoising worse, until you have to back off the  
  throttle and put the trim all the way back down.  Any info  
  someone can share in solving this porpoising problem would  
  be helpful. The boat fishes well. Plenty of room on the front  
  deck and storage space is excellent. Rear deck is also   
  spacious."

     Updated 3/19/03..... fishing?....it's a very comfortable rig and is VERY well  
  constructed from what I can tell. There's a jackplate in the

  but it still performs pretty well at blast off.  Will run right along  
  with the bigger bass rigs.  Very fast boat for the price. May  
  get a jackplate and a different prop to see if I can get a little  
  closer to 70 mph.  The speedometer is about 5 mph too fast.
