You can try and take less gear on board to try and lighten your boat, but if it's struggling to get on plane as quickly as it used to you'd be better off taking a look at your Johnson outboard. The outboard is the only thing pushing your boat up onto plane and if it hasn't been serviced in a while or some parts have worn, it'll lose power and not be performing at its best. You'd be surprised the difference changing out the oils and lubricants, replacing the spark plugs and removing any line or tangled debris from the prop shaft will make. Just these simple things could win you back a couple of horsepower from your outboard, which will make a world of difference out on the water.
