    msx 140 trim?

    i checked the search function, little success.
    Just acquired two msx14o both 2003, one tends to bury the bow more than the other. is there a way to adjust the nozzle trim? I'm new to this, any ideas please?

    Welcome

    The six degree nozzle wedge will tend to lift the bow under power.

    Upgrading to the 2004 version of the ride plate will also help.

    I'd also like to say WELCOME!
    I'd certainly replace both the ride plate and wedge. The ride plate has an extra 4mm kick to it and with the extra 2 degrees of wedge you should see a better top end with that nose lift.
    If the craft then seems to hunt or float, install a 650 R&D intake grate and your handling issues should be solved.
    Remember the list to the left or right side at low speeds is "normal" for this hull.
