You could sell your 5hp and buy a Tohatsu 9.8 2-stroke like I did

Twice the power and no heavier

Your boat will plane then.....

Definitely an option. If one comes up, the wife may be getting an extra little treat

hi
i used to get on the plane with a 2.9 m wetline with a 4hp 2 stroke engine
only me on
it took a while it needed to be flat calm, i had to kneel in the center of the boat as far forward as i could and go with the ripples; once it was on the plane i could sit wherever i wanted and head in the direction i needed to go
you need to get rid of all the weight in the boat

Took the opportunity to drop the wife off on a pontoon on the river on Sunday, and tested the boat/engine with just me in.

I'm getting a divorce! The boat flies along with one up, straight up on the plane

Only joking about the divorce, I guess that I had better look for one of those 9.8hp Tohatsus

I think the 9.8 may be a touch cheaper than the divorce.
