    noon question

    put the 94 and 95 in the water today. Been a busy summer so far.

    Since I've never owned before, I have little practical experience with them.

    How far should the water line be up the side with 230lb on it at slow speed?

    At rest with no one on it sits high. Inside keeping reasonably dry.

    Thanks and don't mind the noon

    An SL with 230 lb rider at slow speed will be sitting low at the rear. If you are going through a slow speed zone, shift your weight forward, and hunt for the throttle position that works best.

    Does your machine have plastic sponsons on the sides of the hull near the rear? Sponsons can help stabilize the hull.

    If it is dry inside, then it is floating as it should, unless you have something non-stock and heavy inside the hull (like a huge battery). Keeping the fuel tank full will help get the nose down, which can help with stability.

    Make sure the seat isn't water logged and heavy.

    My 94 750sl with me on it is stable dead in the water and sits very flat if I stay up near the front of the seat. Im 6'2 and 230 so Im just like you.
