    well the boat hit a wal of a rock. he paniced and let off the gas. broke both engine mounts in half and put the engine in the back seat. the boat went down with the motor. i got it all out though, rebuilt the motor and now its on an engine stand.


    nither boat has full stringers.

    The Fantasy looks to have had a bow tank. If the Tahiti has standard side tanks it should handle better. I think the Tahiti would make an excellent substitute for the damaged boat and that your friend went so far as to find it for you is a really good thing. Most would have told you to file it on your insurance as it was an accident. Yes I know most of us don't have insurance on our boats.

    Building the Tahiti should be one of the moments that 40 yrs from now you and your friend still talk about. There is more to boating than just the boat itself.
    So many projects, so little time

    yes-gravy job-pull the transom plate, unbolt the pump from the intake, and remove!
    couldn't get any easier

    pull the tahiti off the single place trailer and put it on the tandem, and you can swap pumps out without pulling the intake as long as it is the same pump... its not to much of a chore, just make sure to get all the gaskets... good luck
