I think we are going with a name change. It's either:

Tiny Tigga Too

Taka Tigga

What do you guys think?

It's all quite exiting fine tuning a new boat.
I agree, it can be fun.

If you do get ventilation, you might also try a compression plate for the lower unit just above the prop. Not sure if you remember all of the issues we were having with the poor keel design of our boat. We were having bad rolling air under the hull and ventilation at the prop. Was surprised at the difference my DIY plate made. It did have some minor drag but not as much as a hydrofoil.

Wrote a note said, 'back in a minute'. Bought a boat and I sailed off in it.

A bigger ventilation plate is the next option if propeller cupping doesn't cure it.
