    I don't know which video you want to advertise, so here is one I found:

    I own a 2013 Sylvan Mirage Cruise with an Evinrude 115 E-Tec and decided to ad tap fins two weeks after taking delivery of the boat. I live on a large North Carolina lake (Lake Norman) which gets extremely rough from weekend power boat traffic with cabin cruisers and house boats approaching the 60-80 Ft. range. The biggest advantage that I realized after adding the tap fins is that the ride improved tremendously and my load carrying capability improved as well. The top end speed of 30MPH remained the same but the added benefit of an improved drier ride which is a benefit of the added lift that the Tap Fins provide made this investment well worth it.

    Tooned In, do you mind if I ask how much the Tap Fins cost to purchase and install?

    Malcolm when you know you have a boat right there on your home lake that you'll be putting the fins on, PLEASE get us some before and after video.

    Thanks, I listen to him on Sirrius radio talking about broadcasting form his "Lake Norman Studio".

    I zoomed out a bit, that lake is HUGE.

    you can check out pricing info @ conradmarine.com. I also have Tap Fins on my 23'7" Berkshire pontoon with a 90 hp Merc. I have only been out once since installing so I don't have good info as to the difference they might make, but I think that I will be seconding the results of Tooned In. Ck out the website and give them a call. They won't bite.
