Re: Dolfin planing plates for small outboard

There is more than one size (and manufacturer) available. You should be able to find one for most small outboards. I have found them to make a sizable difference in the ability to plane, especially when the dink is heavily loaded.
Of course, if you have a 15' dinghy and a 2hp engine ain't nothin' gonna help.
