I have a 90s deep v smoker craft king trawler. It has a 40hp mercury Marnier. I finally got it in in water. Once out in deep enough water I gave the throttle a good slow push forward. I notice some water underneath the shelf by the fuel port. Once more throttle qas given more water came in. Almost taking the boat down under. I backed off the throttle and the water dissipated and never rose up in a slow speed. Any time more throttle was given more water came in.
Any help would do.
