how does the rx4 perform in waves for fun? compare to the raker. Sometimes it can smash when i go into a wave, i do not think it is the hulll becuase the hull is a really good deep V 22 degree. Will that make a diffrence? Like waves from big boats to just run over smoothly instead of have to turn down the speed. Explain that please!

The 4-blade RX-4 stays "hooked up" in turns and rough water better than other types. It is designed to take advantage of the Evinrude E-TEC G2 with its tremendous low-end torque and performance.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
