Anyway I hope you like it.Just click on the link...

Awesome set up Howy.

As much as i love the Tohatsu I was hoping to see a Yamaha 50 on the back

Have you had any joy with the tiller?

Any way lets see some more action preferably in big waves - bigger the better.

Nice boat and engine! Have you tried to trim it up a bit? What prop are you using?

Hi,
We have trimmed it up,it is also using the standard Tohatsu prop.I personally think it would probably be perfect with a 30hp,but its rated for a 50hp so we fitted one.
When someone is sitting in the front it doesnt "wheelie",the boat seems to raise up about 8" for a split second and then takes off like a scalded cat...(excuse the pun!!!) Much Fun..

Thanks very much for the feedback

Awesome boat.
Whats the deal with it being similar to a zapcat then? Do Gemini manufacture it?

Hi Sam,
They are a similar style craft to the Zapcat.No Gemini dont manufacture them,we had them manufactured to our own specifications,they are also 4.5metres long instead of the Zapcats 4metres,it doesnt sound like much,but it makes a difference,especially when your 6foot 3" tall and 17.5 stone and you want to get your family in the boat aswell...which reminds me I'm late for my Weightwatchers class..........

Thanks for the feedback

I know what you mean, we've got a ceasar thundercat which is only slightly bigger than the zapcats but it makes quite a difference.
Luckily im quite light so can get big air

The standard Tohatsu prop is way too small for this kind of boat. A SST prop would be much better.

Hi reinier,
Many thanks for the reply.I have just bought a Tohatsu 50 with a s/s prop and s/s tiller extension and cant wait to fit it.
Once again thanks for the feedback.
Regards
Howy
