Last Saturday it was my first time to take 3 adults out on my 195CC. So total four male adults, full tank of gas, 2/3 tank of water for bait well. The 36v bow mount trolling motor is 80lbs, plus the battery. There are also two decent size halibuts on board. Windy and relatively strong current. It was the first time for me to feel the boat is so hard to get on plane. Thinking of adding hydrofoil. Any suggestion which one? My boat is 2006 195CC with Yamaha F150.

That's the one I have and recommend. Also, dealers tend to mount the motors too low on our boats. You might benefit from raising the motor one or more holes. And finally, if you have a full load of passengers, locating them properly is necessary to getting on plane effortlessly. Even two halibuts sitting in the jump seats at the stern will hinder your efforts.
