Centimudy Ramp

Launched at Centimudi today. Use caution as the dock is about 30 degrees to the ramp and the water is muddy and you cannot see the ramp. Following the dock will put you into mud 18 inches deep. Water is shallow straight out from ramp, follow the Marina docks out to deep water.

TNX for your reply. You have a PM
The motor is the V8 Pro XS 200HP. There is no torque tab. Max RPM is 6200. I am sure with the right conditions I would turn 6200.
I am not interested in max speed, looking for something that will give best handling.

At Idle speeds when shifting from forward or reverse into neutral without squeezing the Neutral Lock Bar the motor quits. Of course the bar must be squeezed to shift into gear, but must you squeeze to bar to shift out of gear so as not to shut off the motor?
Any help from other Z19 owners?
