Tube Transom (R) attachment points provide a much larger surface area than a conventional fixed transom inflatable boat. Horizontal tube slots run horizontally forward and aft of the transom bar. This helps distribute the weight and power thrust of the outboard into the hulls. This in turn provides optimum power distribution for efficiency and performance. A fabric to fabric bonding system with no PVC transom sleeve prone to UV and folding damage commonly used in solid transom inflatable boats.
Takacat's removable high-pressure (10psi) air deck floor systems is very rigid, absorbs impact and also provides a real comfort factor under foot.
A thicker and more rigid air deck floor system was introduced during 2015. New for 2016 / 2017 Takacat has started custom production of a unique anti skid protective top layer with UV additive. A very strong fabric to fabric bonding system that provides additional protection to the high-pressure floor. Ideal for fishing and everyday boating use.
Unlike conventional ribs or inflatable boats Takacats can be re-tubed simply and cost effectively due to our revolutionary tube transom (R). Our fully removable high-pressure air deck floor system, and tubes are not fixed or glued to a hull or transom. There is no hassle or costly process to have your aged of damaged tubes re made and re glued to the hull. You just simply order a set of new tubes direct from Takacat.
The use of a Hydrofoil plate can provide some great advantages including fuel economy, stability and tracking. We have found Permatrim
Hydrofoils a very good match for the Takacat hulls.
Have your propeller cupped. This is a technique used to enhance the performance of propellers under certain conditions in this case a tunnel hull.
Outboard heights, if you experience any water kick back it's most likely that your outboard is to deep in the water. Simply raise your outboard with a wedge until you find the optimum running height for your outboard / load / boat set-up. Alternatively, a foam wedge (or similar) under the floor at base of transom will have the same effect.
The right blend.
