I don't know whether a 3.3 would plane with a 4, but I do know a 3.4 airdeck inflatable keel I had planned with a 5hp one up

Thanks everyone for your input; guess I'll just leave it for now and wait until the boat arrives to see how it does...! Might force me to get a boating license and get an 8-10hp 2stroke that I can lug around...

RIBase
a long time ago i had a valiant 250 rib and a 5 hp merc 2 stroke which did plane but nose up and needed my weight forward. I fitted a doel fin thingy - not the wide ones but a one piece affair which stuck out about 3/4 inches wider each side - transformed the boat planed with no problems and was just more useable and more fun as for loss of top speed no idea

Ahh them where the days - a whole days fun for less than 20.00

not unlike this New SE Sport 200 SE200 Hydrofoil Hydro Foil Doel Fin Stabilizer SE200BLK | eBay
