We have had way more people and weight in my buddies boat (same year and model) not sure what motor yours has? His is standard 315 MPI. Where were the people in middle? bow? where was the tab? 25-75-100%. That boat with the standard motor is a little piggish out of the hole with a lot of weight, but once it gets over the intial (hump) it should plane out pretty quick. My experience with Kelly's and mine for that matter is you have to just wood it and let it pull it out. I run my 220 with 1,400 to 2,000 lbs almost every time out. Alt will factor, but we have had our 208 on Eagle and it's not much lower than Boca? Strange? Maybe the bmap or ECU was just lazy to react that day? If it does it again, shut it down, and re-start it so it go's thur it's self check?
