    "The Little Tahatti That Could" pulled the owners boat from Eliminator off the beach. For a little guy Ted could get a bigger head! Great showing by the way, all we saw was yellow and black streaks all day and open headers singing!

Ps the little Tahiti isn't the fastest but it did pull a Chevy powered boat off the beach. Just saying. Love you guys.

    This mite be a question for Old Rigger. I was browsing Craigslist and found a 71 Shuster/Tahiti. The guy says it's a dime hull I gues it means it was a 10 out of 10 when inspected and even has a dime glassed in the hull. It's cool story is it true. It was also a full stringer boat also. Any body herd of this?

    It's pretty simple either from PC or smart phone. Start by clicking the photo icon. Then choose from computer Then click choose file and select where your picture is saved, locate the picture you'd like to post. (If on smart phone this will bring you to your photo album. Simply select a photo) Then click ok and you'll be brought back to this screen. Even though "Upload File(s)" doesn't look like a button, it is. You click on that and the photo will upload. Type your message and click post quick reply. That's all there is to it, hope this helps. We'd love to see your pictures so please don't give up.

    I really like this site but posting pictures is too hard . Haven't been out on the boat much bought a new house. Still in Redding, went to the boat drags at east park reservoir an again have some great picture of some nice fast boats. Just can't figure out how too post.

    I am probably done. My fuel regulator works when it wants. For a minute I thought I was going to have to be towed onto my trailer. I dont forsee having the funds to pick up a new one for a few weeks.

    . Ever see a 800 HP pontoon boat? This one has twin 400 Honda's hanging off the back.. Umm, Rich buddy, those are the Merc Racing 400Hp outboards, not Honda's..and at $68000 each, it better go fast!! Another stupid over powered pontoon, you can buy a real boat completely done up and have change left over.. just saying.

    A Tahoe will pull your Tahiti just fine. I just pulled my Eliminator from SW Washington to Powell and back (2420 miles) with a 2003 Ford Ranger with a 4.0L V-6 lol

    Jason needs to Facebook ha. I don't spend much time on a computer so Facebook forums are usually where I hang out. I feel like I've lost touch with a few people because I'm not on here much. We haven't done a single trip this year. I did get the chance to take a ride in Kreg's boat and while it was a short ride it was a blast.

    I know all you guys are getting back or just got back from Powell but I was wondering if anyone plans on getting together before the season here ends lol. If not I'm putting my boat in the back garage and calling it a year. Our truck decided it wanted to start knocking in the bottom end so we weren't able to make Powell. I had the week off too �� We just picked up a 03 Tahoe so I'm curious to see how it pulls the Tahiti.

    Not usually an issue with singles. If You have a multi engine setup, it can become a factor, depending on the shape of the ear/ type of the blades, and direction. A lot has to do with length of the hull, how close the Prop centers are to each other, the infamous 'X' dimension on the transom, RPM speed of the props and several other factors. BUt typically, if the port drive is turning left(CCW) and the starboard (CW) it will 'usually cause bow rise, and in reverse fashion Port (CW) and STBD (CCW) will cause tail or transom lift. Again, a lot of factors play into this. One of the huge advantages to something like a Bravo III drive is the twin counter-rotating props cancel out torque steer, and creates a straight tracking and lift of the transom while increasing an amazing amount of efficiency in fuel economy and handling. But on the down side to the Bravo 3 is the cost of props (2 to a set) are about $800 for a set!! After markets are less of course. That is why I suggested the prop I did. If you can afford a little more $$ in a prop, You may want to call Ron Hill Propellers in Santa Ana, Ca. They are some of the finest props I have ever used, and they will work with you to get your prop issue resolved. On my Cruisers, I had a 365 Hp motor with 405 Ft lbs of torque, and ended up running a 15.5" dia. X 17" P 5blade SSTL. that hull was very heavy at 4450 lbs for a 23 ft OAL. But, it shot up on plane at lightning fast pace. Top speed was only 53 MPH, not bad for a heavy boat. I also have a Piranha 3 blade that would take that same boat to 64MPH but at a slower pace. Props are a funny thing, sometimes they just do not work well on some hulls. Best advice I can offer, is ask other boat shops/owners with simular setup. Or give me a shout. I see if I can help. Dean.
