Although I have posted under my other thread impeller change for dummies.

Just thought I should update where I am at.

Got hold of a Sunsport AIB 2.9m cheers Samt . With 2 big guys 33 stone combined it did get on the plane once we shifted some of the weight to the bow. On my own it was planing in 4-5 seconds and was brilliant fun.

Although it should really have a short shaft on the SIB the Tohatsu was originally bought as an Aux for the RC. I have to say I am pleased I got it and have an engine fit for both purposes.

Again thanks for all the replies and help.
