Trim Important?

Postby Fish4Anything » Mon Feb 12, 2018 5:46 pm

I fished off an STX-15f a few years ago and it did not have trim. I'm about to pull the trigger on a new rig and I'm torn between Yamaha VX and Seadoo. At the same price point the Seadoo has trim and the Yamaha does not. If it were not for the trim I would say Yamaha because of the perceived better reliability and the possibility of using the water spout for a livewell. One of the things I didn't like about the 15f was in the right seas and cruising speed it would porpoise and I had no trim to stop it like on an outboard. I'm not sure if that was only a problem with 15f hull shape and it does not happen with others. Thanks for any feedback.

Hey Fish..

I know what you mean. I have no experience with trim on a Ski. I like the SeaDoo for other reasons though. The Cooling System mainly.

Does your fishing distances and water conditions require Trim??
