I've got a 5HP 2 stroke Tohatsu and a 10' wood-floored inflatable. It'll plane as long as you have less that 300 lbs aboard.

Frankly, I wish I had a smaller roll-up dinghy and a smaller motor. For me, at least, planing isn't important, and I'd prefer the reduced storage space, setup, and lifting.

I guess I'd think twice before seeing planing as a requirement.

Anybody want to trade?
