Does it work?

And can you change the battery? The TinyTach is sealed so when the battery fails (five years) it's landfill.

I'm sure it will - there are loads of these for sale (and sold) everywhere and other RIBnetters with them I believe. I'm unable to try until next outing hopefully in a week but will report back.
Re' the battery, TBH I'm happy to pay a tenner just to get the engine/prop set up 100% and check it's running as it should at WOT etc - after that it's done it's job.

Loco - where's that post/pic you posted of water flow over the cav plate etc - I am sure mine was just as it should be but cannot find the pic now to compare?
Loco, I found that pic you posted:

Futura Mk3 owners: What prop/max. speed?

Pleased to say with the 18mm raiser the flow was exactly as you posted.

Max,

Congrats, that's Tohatsu's sweet height spot, just trim engine to be perpendicular to water level once sib is floating alone. Ballance gear, passengers accordingly to have a near paralell boat runing at sea level once on plane. Post wot rpm with that tach to check if reading correctly. All hour tachs are sealed, with bit of patience some of them can be opened and battery replaced.

BTW, have a Tiny Tach with around 1 K hours bought more than 10 years and still running like a champ.

Happy Boating
