Fast Tail Outboard Hydrofoil

 

Aluminium Outboard Hydrofoils
When it comes to outboard hydrofoils, performance experts agree that flat aluminium hydrofoils are the only option.

Fast Tail Outboard Hydrofoils are the best performance modification per dollar in the marine industry. So many benefits for under $160. Once you have tried the fast tail, you’ll never own a boat without one.

Fast Tail Outboard Hydrofoil Advantages

 

1. Fast Tail attaches under the cavitation plate rather than on top. This spreads the load evenly throughout the plate rather than on the individual bolts. This method is highly recommended by performance boat experts.
2. Thinner stream line shape provides less drag and steering load
3. Fast Tail reduces propeller cavitation, allowing the engine to be raised which considerably reduces drag and increases performance and handling.
4. Fast Tail has been designed to allow the trim tab to remain on the engine.
5. Fast Tail has a larger surface area and is constructed of stiff marine grade aluminium which guarantees performance and life expectancy over plastic models.


Fast Tail Outboard Hydrofoil Guarantee

Fast Tails are the best performance modification per dollar in the marine industry. We guarantee that you will be completely satisfied with the huge performance gain your boat will achieve with the Fast Tail. Or call Fast Company direct within 30 days of purchase for a refund.

 

 

Fast Tail Hydrofoil Preferred Fitting

Note: If cavitation plate is curved or trim tab low, use supplied rubber washers between fast tail and cavitation plate when bolting.

Fast Tail Preferred Fitting

1. Place the Fast Tail on the underside of the cavitation plate. Plastic clamps work well.
2. Centre the Fast Tail on the cavitation plate and mark centre lines

3. Mark holes then drill holes through cavitation plate (Note holes provided are optional). Add another set of holes for power boating

4. Place Fast Tail on underside of cavitation plate and bolt it to the cavitation plate loosely with minimum size 1/4 inch bolts. If the cav plate is curved or trim tab is low, use washers to fill in the space.
5. Just before completely tight, squeeze some silicon between the cav plate and fast tail, a syringe full of silicon works well
6. Allow silicon to dry as per silicon instructions.

7. Once dry, firmly tighten the bolts. The silicon will now act as an absorbing rubber gasket

 

 

Customer Feedback

 

Dear fast_company_47,
hi i tried fast tail on the weekend 15hp 3.7 stessl edgtracker could not believe the difference no porpoising and goes faster worth its wait in gold great invention thanks - skipatpub

 

Luke gave the fast tail a go sat & sun just gone. Mate I have a totally different boat, rough water handling was brilliant pick up and go was awesome. Will be able to sell some for you, mates thought it was brilliant. Could you send me some brochures please? Regards Graeme. Graeme Moore

 

Hi Luke, Just sent the new 200 Verado out with the Fast Tail. Owner really impressed.
Need a small and large tail to put back into stock thanks mate. Cheers, Jason Disson Disco Marine

 

Hi Luke, can you please send me another 40hp-125hp fast tail. We tried the first one the other day, and it halved the planning time. Very happy. Many thanks Josh Smith Sales Manager Penrith Marine

 

Hi Luke, I would like to thank you for your fast service and I would like to say how pleased I am with the result.I have used other foils before but have never experienced such positive results for so little money.
The boat is a Haines Signature 485sf with a 90 Etec running a 18” Raker Prop with the propshaft 80mm below the bottom of the boat. The boat used to lift its nose on take off (due to running the engine so high) now it is dead Flat and is on the plane in less than halve the time. I can now plane at 2300rpm at 10mph without the fast tail it dropped of the plane at 3000rpm.
I have also gained 100rpm at full throttle. Thanks again Wayne Drabsch Cannonvalley Qld

 

Hey Luke took the fast tail for a run last night - wind was up a little so there was some pretty choppy water and it seemed to take all the bounce out of it really well - made for a lot smoother ride and was always on top of the water rather than cutting through it - didn't let go at full speed because I had my young fella with me but seemed to have power to spare and the handling was heaps better - a really good investment - thanks Cheers Grant Healey 16/11/11


Hi Luke , Fitted fast tail to 90 hp Evinrude on cruise craft 5mtr. Customer was complaining of porpoising even with engine fully trimmed down. After fitting and boat testing customer rang back to thank us for fitting as now porpoising has been completely eliminated and engine runs at 50 percent trim angle. He has also gained 5mph at top speed as you can imagine one very happy customer. Thanks for a great product . Regards, Adrian

The foils really change de handling of the boat. I am so happy. They are simply great my friend. Will send you pictures today. Thanks again for the good job done. Vatea

 

Dear fast_company_47,
hi, Just wanted to let you know that I have now fitted and trialed your Fast Tail on our 17 foot Tournament boat. This unit is very well made and once fitted out performed what i had expected from such a unit. It has greatly improved boat control in rough seas and the performance of the boat now REALLY puts a smile on my face as I have gained a further 200rpm on top end taking my boat water speed to 45MPH, our boat will now easily plane at a lazy 2500rpm for great fuel saving economy. I actually catch much bigger boats with large outboards and overtake them with confidence as the boat is much more stable crossing wake at speed. I will highly recommend this item to anyone who is interested in purchasing and fitting one.
thank you. Patrick - texasflysuperstar

 

Hi mate,
Your fast tail works awesome...... I own a 465 open tinny with a 70hp tohatsu tiller steer on the back. Previously the boat would bog in and be stern heavy trying to get on the plane, also fall off the plane easily at low planning speeds at any trim setting. After fitting the fast tail myself quiet easily, i immediately noticed changes in boat as it now sits almost flat when accelerating onto the plane, holds planning speed much lower and gets out of the hole and on the plane much easier. Also i was able to lift the motor by 50mm which gained more revs and slight speed. I will definitely be putting a fast tail on my next boat when i upgrade. Great product which works excellent.......

To who it may concern
I would just like to tell you of the improvements to my 21 Cyclone (with 300 Promax) that the Fast Tail has done for my boat. My boat was a good race set up, but was a pain to use as a social boat, so i tried the fast tail , now I am happy with my boat both social and race, it can tow a wake board and race with the same setup, with a added bonus of better fuel economy out of the big Promax (which was badly needed). It has also helped with my setup as a race boat as well, helping to pull skiers up quicker even with my big race prop. WILL NOT OWN A BOAT WITHOUT ONE AGAIN
Thankyou, David

“Fast Tail Hydrofoil”should be called “Fast Tail Transom Saver”
I sometimes can’t fathom how my transom holds my 300 Opti through the huge impact of each big wave landing. Fast Tail is in the perfect position to be the“pre-landing cushion”. As it arrives in the water first, the water pressure against the fast tails surface area takes up to 30% of the weight / impact before your boat lands. “Fast Tail Transom Saver” should be on every boat.

LOVE my fast tail. Looks great, easy to fit, reduced planing time, allows me to get on a plane with a much larger load, I was able to increase the height of motor which gained speed. Will definitely fit a fast tail on all future boats I own.

Dear fast_company_47,
Hi Luke, Gave the "Fast Tail" a workout over the long weekend, and it does make the boat suitably nicer to control, at low speed with less throttle required to propel forward, and smooth high speed turns, even did a bit of slalom just for the feel, at high speed, and it felt very comfortable and smooth. Hole shot take offs were good as it propelled forward, and not like a dolphin to the plane. All in all, glad I did do the fit out. Made a few people take notice with their bigger boats !!
Boat details: Savage 3.7mtr aluminum tinny with 28hp Suzuki DT28 2-stroke.
Once again, Thanks Luke. Rick Block Adelaide.

 

Hi Luke,
I fitted the "Fast Tail" yesterday and took it for a spin at Lake Cairn Curran today. I was astounded by the immediate and significant difference in planning ability, even at very low speed. Now my 13ft fibreglass "tinny" with an 8hp Mercury sits very well in the water even with me and all the weight at the back. I'll be delighted to recommend your innovative hydrofoil to all. Best wishes, Tony Knight. - pop4win

 

Hi Luke,
We tried a FAST TAIL today went really well we are very happy with it.
I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT THE LARGER ONE.
