    I have a Nitro Z7 with 150 Pro XS (no jack plate). My motor is mounted in the second hole from the top. On Nitro's website, I see a photo of a Z7 with the motor mounted in the third hole from the top, which puts the motor higher on the transom than mine. I am wondering how others have theirs rigged, and if you know of any advantages or disadvantages of moving the motor up one hole. Thanks,

    Mike

    Mine is mounted in 3rd hole....there are 5 holes and the 3rd is the middle one. Works perfect for my 150 ProXS and Z7 hull.

    When do you start trimming out? I had to leave my 929 trimmed down until the nose fell over, then I could start trimming. Where are you mounted now? What is your prop to pad measurement? What prop are you running? Lots of variables and not a "1 answer fits all" type of issue.
