I tilted my engine (15 hp 2 cycle) UP slightly (prop farther aft and higher) and it made my 10-4 Achilles rib plane much better. I also went down 1 inch in pitch and I only lost about 1 MPH. With 6 adults and a full 6 gallon tank it jumps on plane easily.

The anti-cavitation plate of the outboard should be about 1/2" below the bottom of the hull. This is extremely difficult to achieve with a long shaft on a dink ...... trade it in for a short shaft .... been there done that.

As he stated in the post a while back, he has a short shaft.
