parsun. cavitation

My friend has purchased a 4 meter. Chinese type quicksilver rib and a. Parun 9.8 hp 4stroke motr. With 2 on board the rib won't plane but just sits up with lots of cavitation. Is the set up wrong or is the motor not man enough for the job

Well, it IS coming up Christmas. Maybe he was after something to mix the egg nog in.

Seriously though, I'm not surprised a 9.8hp won't make a 4m rib plane with 2 people in. It's not a big enough motor.

Still needs a bigger motor though.

At least 20-25hp.

I 'just' ( only just !) got a 3.5 humber RIB to plane with a 9.9 4stroke merc on it ..It was on a flat calm river and the hull was not exactly a deep V.....

It felt like it took about 3 days to get there from opening the throttle too....

The rib came with an anchor with 25 meters of string. Do you think this is adequate as he is hoping to scuba dive

Yes I an sorry it was a silly question as the bay averages 25 to 30 meters and a prevailing wind that makes it a kite. surfers dream
