I just purchased a brand new LOWE pontoon boat last week, and this weekend during its second voyage, we got the surprise of our lives. We slowed down to wave a some local boaters, and when we did, the front just dove under water. I slammed it into reverse and everyone it the front scrambled toward the rear and all was well, except for the river water on my brand new carpet. At least we all were safe.
I thought the boat was balanced pretty well, but I guess I was wrong. We slowed from about 15mph to about MPH when this happened.
Should I have trimmed the motor up when I slow down???
Please give ideas to prevent this from happening again.
