Thanks guys.

John thank you, the 9.8 would be great to try - I will try and sort some transport soon and maybe pop up and give it a blast local to you if thats ok?

Peter - where abouts are you based? How heavy is your 10?

I have a Zodiac 2.8m SIB (solid floor but with air keel)

With two of us on board it would plane easily with our Mercury 6hp on the back, achieving about 14mph.
Our combined weight is about 20 stone.
Any more weight (one child) and it wouldn't plane.

I just replaced the engine with a Tohatsu 9.8, which is the same weight as the Mercury, 26kg. I'm hoping it will get on the plane with 3 people on board now, but I haven't tested it yet.
