    I have a eastern sisu with a 115 on a armstrong bracket.. boat really rides good for a 22 ftr . I find in a following just play with throttle and find a sweet spot,bow up ,I actually don't even use my tabs at all for sea conditions.. I think engine not buried down will be better also..good luck and enjoy

    24 ft seaway
    I forgot to ask if you have a stainless prop or an aluminum one. I had an aluminum prop and it would levitate and not trim the bow up when needed. Switched to a stainless prop with more cup to the blades. No more cavitation, bow comes up when needed. Changed the handling in a following sea completely for the better. Boat is 24 Sea Way with a 115 etec.
