2016 sweetwater 2486 with 27” pontoons

I purchased my boat last year, it had never been in the water, it has a 150 Yamaha on it and like most all sweetwater with 27” pontoons it has a bad cavitation problem. I was hoping to find an answer to that problem on here but I haven’t seen anything positive yet. Can someone please advise me if The manufacture has found a cure yet, as this is very frustrating especially for the price of these boats.

    I have the same issue with my 2086. Minimal up trim is about all my 115 can handle while running at higher rpms.

    I may go with a jack plate.

    What holes is your motor bolted to? Did you get the extended 25” shaft?
