Okay I have towed a 15ft BWhaler the past 3 years to the Bahamas with no issues. I tow approx 130-150ft back and trim the motor slightly down and tie the steering up. This year I'm towing a larger 19' PioneerSF to the Bahamas. This boat weighs approx 1500 lbs more than the Whaler and has a modified vee. I'm wondering if I will need to keep the engine prop slightly in the water or will be able to totally raise the engine? Any thoughts on this? Since its hydralic steering I don't need to tie the steering up. With the Whaler I was able to tow it running 24-25 knts. Not sure if I will be able to do that this time.
