I have 6m RIB with Yammy 90. I haven't done this very accurately but on flat water (tidal Thames) 18kts seemed to be the lowest speed at which I was 'properly' planing. On the sea I was planing at lower speed, maybe 12-15 kts. That seems counter-intuitive so possibly it was my feel of where the boat was comfortably planing was a bit different.
I've ordered the Smart Tabs with the optional retractor plate kit, so, when I have them fitted, I'll be able to test with tabs and without in identical conditions.
