Getting "on-the-plane" is that feeling when you have friends and/or your kids in the boat and you've promised them that "it's really good" but they(and you) struggle to get it when the engine is screaming with your bow pointing at the moon when........and just that magical "when", the stern lifts and for no more input from the throttle the boat is gaining speed. It's almost weightless and you feel the need to back off but the ride smooths out. The speed is something that brings an unexpected smile to your face and the wind to your hair. Everybody on board now believes you.......and understands. Did I tell you it was cool or am I actually surprised at how cool this is?
Now you're planing, everybody's laughing and you don't want to stop.
That's planing.
omg i thought it was just me

Without friends or kids nobody believes you. But you don't care.
With them you just smile..........because you know that they cared, a lot!

After sib is resting for some minutes on water so to give time for pressure to staibilize, you can top to those tubes/keel and air floor perfect stated pressures.

Have used air floor sibs for some time and they need to be top inflated for better water performance, but definiteley not as nice as having wooden or alum panel floor sibs. It's the nature of the beast.

Happy Sibbing

Trip button on jet ski (and many outboards) changes angle of water jet to adjust the pitch of the boat at speed. Bow down for fast turns (trim water jet to point down), trip bow up on straight to give max speed.. In a sib you generally set the trim to what you want with the pin and from day to day use the passengers and your self to trim the boat. But with a 66kG boat (ali floor) and a good 20hP, bow up trim is not my set up on a windy day, top speed is not everything, a safe top speed is .... (so I trim down a little.)

I'm a heavy guy, and I think I've notcied that. It is much harder for me to get on plane when I'm siitting on the tube, as compared to me being on the floor. What is the reasoning behind this?
