Fastest dinghy, 6hp max !

Our local regatta has a dinghy race, max hp is 6 !
I have won it for the last 2 years, with an aluminium hulled 4metre ribeye rib, with a 2 stroke Yamaha 6hp engine.
Rivals are keen to take my crown, so any suggestions on what would be a faster outfit ?
Many thanks.

I'd imagine you'd be faster in a wee inflatable dinghy like a 2.3m avon? I can get it on the plane with a 3.3hp, leave the engine pointing dead ahead and use your bodyweight to lean and turn the boat

You get mini thundercats too, you get cheap copies from China, again under 3 meteres
