sorry just seeing this reply..

I really like this etec, it has given me zero troubles.  Hole shot is decent, trim tabs down and motor trimmed right, it gets on plane no problem even with a load.  With just me and a half tank of fuel I get around 38-39mph at WOT. Cruises great around 30mph at about 3/4 throttle.  

These boats have a tendency to squat as it is so the extra 100lbs or so compared to the original 2 stroke Yamahas it was made for do make a difference in draft, but when poling another person the boat balances out well and drafts around 1’ maybe an inch or 2 less if the bottom is soft. Hard bottom you will need a 1’ to pole comfortably without scrubbing and working your tail off. 

hope this helps
