Grin Factor

Just got a nearly new Tohatsu 50hp short shaft on a tiller.

I have a long shaft conversion kit on the way, but....

I'm thinking of keeping it short for a while and having some fun next summer but the only problem is I don't know what to put it on

Any ideas? It came off a Zodiac F470

Looks decent!

If not a thundercat/zapcat what about something along the lines of a ceasar surfcat? Its a rib but with the hijackers you still get the speed, handling & capabilities a thundercat has. Plus you can still hit the rough stuff! Zodiac do a version & so do gemini...might be worth a look?
