On a better note we love our Amber Yellow color. We have had many positive comments and thumbs up. The people that have stopped and asked about it have been amazed that Bennington has stopped producing this color. They think it's unique and a real head turner. Glad we took delivery before the production ceased on the Amber Yellow.

We have '11 SLi, 50 hp Yamaha, I trim up all the way at full throttle, trimming down to 3/4 on the trim gauge robs 500 rpm, and about 2mph.
You need to play with the trim to find what is optimal for your setup.
You say it's lugging, what is your W.O.T. rpm, and does the rpm drop off when you go from 3/4 to full throttle?
As for the Yellow, not for me personally, but i do like the look, and think Bennington might want to rethink that one!
And by the way, you've had it since June, and only have 13hrs on it? There's your problem right there!

Will check the fuel,etc. as suggested. The boat was delivered with a full tank of fuel added by the dealer. We have only added about 6 gallons since we took delivery. Not sure what type of fuel the dealer put in. We only use ethanol free gas in our boats and jet ski.

As far as the yellow, be careful putting a yellow mooring cover on the boat. There have been some complaints about the yellow bleeding on the top of Ivory seats, and the owners couldn't get the yellow off. I would ask for a neutral color mooring cover replacement.
