Took the wife's Ribeye IF250 2.5m inflatable out last weekend.This is an inflatable V hull model and nice and light. I also bought her a 2003 Mariner 5hp 2-stroke engine to go with it.
The engine seemed to run well, and it was great fun.
The boat didn't quite get up onto the plane though, so was just wondering if there was any tips to help with this, or do you think that the engine isn't ever going to be quite powerful enough to do this?
We were both in the boat, so maybe it would with only one of us, but that would defeat the point of having the little boat, and I certainly couldn't trust her to take it out by herself
The boat specs 5hp as the max... but I'm brave
