    Yup, normal ... with a full tank of gas, you quickly learn to lean back and slow down gently, else you get a partial submarine!

    On my first ride I was surprised that the nose digs down in the water while you idle...had a full tank of gas...it really bugs me that it does that but nothing you can do about.

    Use your trim and put less gas in the tank
