Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

I am afraid you are right. I am spending WAY too much money getting my :mac19: updated. I have a new 40 hp motor on the way. In the process of finding a small console for wheel steering. I drew the line at 10k for a carbon mast. It is probably going to cost me more getting this :mac19: right than wh...

Re: model 19 rudders

The hobie rudders work better than the original rudders on the :mac19:
They do require a bit of modification (cutting) to fit and rise properly.
You will also need something to go in there with the rudder to account for the difference in thickness. I used a piece of wood with a hole drilled in it.

Re: Repowering Options June 2020 Evinrude leaves outboard business, confirmed

NNNOOOOOOOO! Just my luck I just repowered with an E-tec last year. I love the way it has performed so far. Just as I loved the Evinrude I had on my boat since the mid 90's. What is this world coming to??? What will they put on the new :tat22: if they ever build it? They were going to use E-tec. :cry:

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

I was feeling lucky so I went on the Tattoo web page to look for any updates. I did not see any. Then, I clicked on the Facebook link at the bottom, and It said I could not see this page. Has anyone else had this problem? I hope it is down while they update something, and that this is not the beginn...

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

Thanks for the in-depth reply about the need for storage on the loop. It is one of the first things on my bucket list. Did you use the bikes a bunch? Did you have Uber? Did you catch and eat a bunch of fish? Did you use a guide book or just charts? Was the need for more gas ever an issue? Did you ge...

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

Did you feel that extra 4 feet was need for storage or to just be able to get further away from the person you were spending way to much time with for a year?

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

You know people have circumnavigated in boats smaller than 22'.

I think 22' is the perfect size for a great loop boat. Think of the money we would save every time we are at a marina and they charge by the foot.

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

I apologize for not updating. I was really hoping that there would be some announcement or update coming from Tattoo by now. I called before driving to the location. Laura answered and said they are still working on getting the factory set up. She also asked me not to come by for a visit because the...

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

I am driving to Miami in December. I might just drive by the new factory on my way back North and give everyone an update.

Re: Mac 19 FS, I wonder if it's legit

I purchased mine for 6,500 not too long ago.

The :mac19: while rare, does not command high prices.

If I ever get my hands on a :tat22: I will be selling my :mac19: for right around what I paid for her. I have made some nice improvements as well. 8)

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

There is a post on the Facebook page that says the 22 :tat22: will be ready before the end of 2018.

Well, I am ready for it. :D

Re: Yamaha 9.9 stalls at idle and low throttle - please advi

Small 4 strokes are known to have issues if not run on a regular basis. I had so many problems with mine that I ended up trading it for an older 2 stroke. The opening on the carburetor on that motor is very tiny. Any little particle can get in there and clog it. You also have the problem of ethanol ...

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

I am still hopeful. 2018 might just be the year my dream boat finally gets made. Until then, I will keep sailing my :mac19: when the wind cooperates.
