I have a 24' SeaRay with a chevy 350 and the idle won't go lower than 650 rpms. The boat trolles at 3.2 mph.
I want to be able to slow down to as slow as 1.8 but can live with 2.2.
I know some fellas use drift socks on each side but that seems like to much work to pull out every time you want to motor up to a new spot.
Others have a plate on the lower unit. How will they work? what if I forget to lift it up before motoring up?
Is this the way to go? What are your thoughts on these options?
