Rib310 up on plane with 4 adults and still weigh little enough to carry down the transom ladder by a 62 year old sailor. I am avoiding using the davits
since the avon
slides down the transom and the outboard would not.
for your requirements in my opinion, to get 4 people up on plane, on a 310 avon, and with your weight limitations, you are going to need to find a 15hp 2 stroke. Can't really think of a 4 stroke
that will do that, tried the same thing on an apex with the tohatsu 9.9 and no joy, but others might have a different experience.
Others mentioned, but head
to the bahamas
, and grab a enduro 15hp 2 stroke, or pay an outrageous price
at the few dealers domestically that are stocking the older engines.
