LOL... I think the general consensus is that despite their claims, its witchcraft at best. It doesn't get the pontoon up on top of the water like a lifting strake does. its all about displacement of water, and the volume and hydraulic pressure exerted from the primary offshoot of water from the pontoon is neither of sufficient volume or pressure to lift the pontoon up on top of the water.
Like has been said...Witchcraft, my boy, witchcraft.

It sounds like one of those tornado throttle bodies for Jeep’s. They don’t hurt anything, but are a waste of money better spent elsewhere.

I miss Malcolm and his snake oil Tap Fins. His posts were entertainment gold.

Makes perfect sense to me :donno

I mean lets slow down the water dispersion with friction and over come it with 200+ hp on the back :lol3

Now someone spent a bunch of $$!!on an extrusion die or found another application...might call my rep. It actually might work for lifting strakes and some 4200 would work nice.

Would like to add a couple feet to each toon w/o welding
