I've got a 17 1/2 foot Ranger that came with a 75 Evinrude

Customer Question

I've got a 17 1/2 foot Ranger that came with a 75 Evinrude tiller. Very poor performance on the low end so I traded for a 2012 Mercury 60 4-stroke Bigfoot. Problem is I can't get up on plane when more than two people in the boat, very slow even with 1 or 2. I've
been reading about the Trophy Sport and the Spitfire and wonder if you'd recommend either and if so which and with what pitch. My boat is glass, weighing in at 1,050 lbs.
