Re: NIssan 90 prop pitch

grnwtcruzn, First, Nissan is simply a rebadged Tohatsu. We run a 2004 Tohatsu TLDI 90 on an M. We started with a 14" diameter X 13" pitch prop. Semi-lightly loaded, no ballast, the engine would only get to 48-4900rpm, wide open throttle, out of the 5200-5800 factory recommendation. I don't recall t...

I installed a 2009 50HP Tohatsu fuel injected, oil injected motor last year.
Fast, fast, fast.

Re: Tender behind

I don't have a tender, but there have been times when I wish I had one.
I do pull my kids behind Alpha Sail often. This is from about 2 weeks ago before the water started getting too cold in Kemah, Tx.

Re: To rebuild or not to rebuild? What a F@&%ing question!

Have you thought about finding some highschool student looking to make a little cash?

You could play supervisor. At $10-$20 per hour plus parts, you get a good working motor for $100-200 and sell it for $1000.
New the 50HP Tohatsu costs about $5100 plus installation.
Good luck.

I met a guy last weekend overnighting in a S with a pop-up.

Re: Time to name my boat

I just got a 26X as well and will be using it in Kemah. Maybe I'll see you out there! The PO already named my boat "Surfer Girl". Awesome. Congrat's. I keep my boat at a mast-up storage place right on the water; FM 2094. I've counted 6 MAC's in that place at least...and a few next door in the water...
