The height of your outboard and angle of it will also have an effect on the ability to plane, try some minor adjustments to see what difference it makes

that is one of the things i plan on doing. i need to take it out before hand to make sure everything still feels and acts right with just me.

i just talked to him a little bit ago. were gonna go out empty. get him placed to where it planes and then start adding our gear. without gear we should be right around my normal weight. i have a fish bag that i always bring for the fish that dont fit in the cooler, so getting rid of the cooler will save a ton of weight. i love my transom tank but i think that it might have to go for when i bring him. so i have at least a half day of figuring out what works.

I don't know how long your arms are but a short tiller extension will help you reposition your own weight forward.

I'm going to open up the worm can & ask have you tried a fin on the cavitation plate ? I've had lot's of success with them on every boat I've had when it comes to getting on the plane really quickly !!
Marmite product but 20 and four holes (easily filled) and if you don't like it stick it on ebay or the back of the shed.....

i have thought about it. when its just me, by myself in 1-2ft chop i get cavitation at higher speeds. so ive thought about it. but i wasnt cavitating. might be another option as well..

If that sib is rated for max 15 HP engine, a 9.8 is too poor to overcome hull drag and plane nicely if with more than 2 mates. Inflate sib to its factory recommende working psi pressure, move mates up front, go full throttle. If nothing happens, need a larger sib or more punchy engine.

Happy Boating

Lifters trim tabs for inflatables
