    Issue when towing

    Was out on the water yesterday with the fzs and the biscuits. Hooked 3 of em and headed out into deep water. Now conditions were pretty choppy, but I didn't think that it would affect me as much as it did. Give it some throttle to ease onto plane but it just wouldn't get up, bouncing off limiter and just down right struggling. I think we got onto plane once all day.
    Is there a solution to this or was it purely the conditions??

    i would say very worn prop to housing clearance, if its not that its definatly 2 biscuits to much actually should have wrote that the other way around thats alot of dead weight.

    i would say proop burn or damaged prop. shine a torch through the intake grate and then look through the steering nozzle at the gap around the prop (between the prop surface and wear ring) if you have any more than .7 - 1.0mm gap then i would guess thats your problem chewed prop or cav burned prop
