I had a suzumar 2.7 air floor for a few years as a tender. It wouldn't plane with a Suzuki 4 4 stroke but would plane with a Johnson 5hp 2 stroke if i sat far enough forward. I used a tiller extension ( in reality 1/2 a tiller extension as I cut it in half). Otherwise being only 5'7" I could hardly reach the tiller with my fingertips and nearly fell out as a consequence due to poor control.
