I think the Tahiti is the best $150 boat that can be stored in a closet. It is not tough enough for whitewater and it catches a lot of wind, but for paddling down flat rivers it is good cheap fun.
I bought the skeg to try to make it track straighter, but there are no instructions on how to install it. In the position suggested by the inadequate photo and drawing that came with it, it is too high, barely breaking the surface of the water. It has a spike molded into it that would fit in the hole in the cleat that anchors the spray skirt tie-down, but the spike is ten inches higher than the cleat. Ridiculous! I hope the boat would not be ruined if I cut a slit between the two pontoons right at the tip of the stern, so the skeg would ride low enough to be attached to the cleat.
