My 4hp 2s just gets out 2.5m rib on the plane if alone. Any more than 14.5 stone and it won't get up.

Once up, it shifts!Click image for larger version

I had a Mariner 6hp on my 2.8m Zodiac.
It would plane easily with two of us on board, requiring a few seconds to get going, and would do about 14mph.

I changed the engine for a Tohatsu 9.8 and with that on the back the boat goes like a rocket (well, for a little 2.8m SIB anyway) achieving about 20mph two up.
