Best rider and trim position...
I don't think this has ever been discussed. Curious as to what positions are yielding the best speed and in what conditions. I'm just a hair over 6' and seem to find an almost seated position in the passenger portion of the seat with arms just about fully extended and the trim a notch above center.
But I can't seem to find a sweet spot to keep her from porpoising at times. Anyone got a consistent spot?

I think it depends on the conditions your riding in.Glass....light chop,heavy chop,into the wind,away from it,etc.When I find myself porpoising in chop,sometimes it helps if I lean over the handlebars some,feet back midway in the footwells.I use one bar over center almost exclusively,because I'm a lazy couch rider,lol.

I think that's the best trim position. When she starts to porpoise I adjust the trim down until it stops and then gradually bring it back up.

I always ride with the trim in the highest position, i find it a dryer ride, and it gets the nose over small chop/ boat wakes easier, i fiddle around with it if im carving which i have full down or if it starts to bounce i lower it and bring it back up.
its also more playful in the highest position
