My boat (p2 – know is smaller but may apply) seems to have better holeshot if only give it 1/2-3/4 throttle to get out of the hole.  Have a 200 mercury v8 with 23 fury 3.   If put foot to the floor basically just spins the tires on holeshot.  My jack plate is 1/8 inch over flush on the inner outer plates.

Just something to try, the new 4s make a lot of torque without a ton of RPMs or ventilation like the 2 strokes needed.  On mine don’t floor it until it already has broken over and up out of the hole.

Does a 4-bladed prop help since it has more surface area and not as easy for the engine to over power?
