SD2000 Performance Issues
I have a 2012 Hurricane SD2000 that I bought brand new. It has the Yamaha F150 o/b. When I first bought it I was having performance issues with prop cavitation, extremely hard to get "out of the hole" and up on a plane and I could not touch the trim from full down without the prop cavitating and losing bite. The dealer tried different props and eventually contacted Hurricane. After much discussion I was told I have a "hook" in the hull which was causing the water flow below the boat to deflect downward away from the prop. The motor was lowered as low as it could and still had the same problem. The dealer and Hurricane considered installing a Jack Plate to get the motor lower but it would not work so they eventually installed a 5" extension kit on the motor and a longer (30") shaft. Afterwards I was getting better performance but now it is too low in the water and I get excessive spray kicking up behind the boat. I have had the motor raised to the highest settings and still get the spray behind the boat. I love the boat but hate the way the motor looks now and I cant get rid of the spray from behing the boat. Is anyone else experiencing this or did I get stuck with a lemmon?
