I recently purchased Wildfire, a 1985 26 with a volvo Tamb40.  I am having frequent prolems with cavitation @2800-3000 rpm. The engine appears to be running smoothly,the prop and rudder are in good condition w/ no obvious nicks etc. The proplem is sporatic and does not occur all the time. Occasionally I can power thru it but usually find going down to 2500rpm is needed to end the cavitation.   Any recommendations to resolve the problem?    Scott Hartshorn
