By raising the motor, I wasn't talking about using the trim. I am talking about actually raising the motor by loosening the mounting bolts. If the foot is deeper than necessary (still not talking about the trim) you can lose several miles per hour in speed. However, you can lift the motor too high and cause cavitation even without trimming it up which will cause over-revving and overheating and will destroy a good engine.
In any case, 60 mph sounds pretty good for your combo.
Good luck and good fishin'
