      That's very interesting I wonder if its a prop thing or you possibly need a fin????I believe I did add those to all but the 6 hp Tohatsu seemed to work without it. Please keep me posted and have a Merry Christmas.

      Does your current motor have a 15 or 20 inch shaft? The 15 should do the job and of course the 2 stroke will do it also. Make sure of the shaft length.

        Yep, it's the 15" short shaft. It actually came as a package deal. And from looking in to it before I bought the setup, I fully expected it to plane, no problem. I even brought the motor to a authorized suzuki shop for them to check out. All was/is good. Just for whatever reason...can't get up on plane. Even with only me, seated up front or to the stern.

      Nick I think your issue is that you have an air floor under the wood slats. We had a 6 Tohatsu 4 stroke and if my wife layed across the bow and I stretched across the tube we got her up to 13 mph. That was the only way and once the floor bowed upwards we took off.

        I need to check my messages more often. Thank you for the suggestion.
        However, I have an aluminum hull, which makes it all that much more confounding.
        I'm going to sell my 6hp suzuki outboard and get a used 2stroke 8-10 hp.
