That’s good to hear. Can’t remember did u do 12x18 blades as well?
No. I've got a 36v lithium ion trolling battery (and a Rhodan trolling motor mounted on the bow) and two group 27 AGM batteries in the console now. I switched over to roll up tackle bags for all of my trolling lures and had them rolled up in 3 Yeti buckets in the console as well. I had my Yeti Hopper 30 loaded and sat it in the bow of the boat. 3 men on board and probably about 100lbs of fish/ice in the transom fish box at the end of the day. I couldn't believe how much better the boat road & handled.

Hi
I’ve been struggling to get bow down at 18 to 20 mph when in real 3 to 4 ft seas. Bought 4 blade prop from Ken at P Gods and that helped but still can’t bury bow in the rough stuff when I wanna come back 40 miles offshore and don’t mind it taking 2 hrs to avoid the pounding you get at 25 mph plus. Ordered new 12 x 18 blades which I know will help but I’m also considering a Permatrim. I’m wondering if the permatrim will be needed or if bigger tabs will do it. I’m also thinking about moving batteries to console which would help get weight forward and not have to lay on deck to turn on battery switches. Lots of possibilities looking for real world recent experience.
Boat is a 2017 with yami 300

Permatrim was a great addition for my 2320

Here is what I did on my 2015 2320 with a 300 Yamaha. When I bought the boat it already had the 4 blade prop. I added a permatrim but I still wasn’t happy with the ability to bury the nose. So I moved the 2 house batteries into the cabin and left the starting battery in the stern. But I still didn’t like it. Then I added the 12x18 trim tabs. Now with just a small adjustment of the tabs I can put the nose where I want it. If I would have done the tabs first I wouldn’t have added the permatrim.
Whaler, did you install a new tab system or just new blades with the original Lenco actuators?

New blades with original actuators, but I had to move the mounting location of the actuators to match the new blades.
