Default Tantrum "Defiant"

Any chance ever seeing a "Defiant " version in a tantrum?

Highly unlikely. Pat hasn't produced the 25 in quite a few years. The 29 is currently the entry level model, and perhaps the 22 will make an appearance again one day.

LMAO! After it was corrected, but I do remember that day. We had hired a new rigger (He was more of a mechanic than a rigger) and he botched up a few things before he learned correctly! I remember Pat wigging out during the initial splash because everything was back asswards!!

It was only the steering rack was in backwards. We still took it out in nasty water and ran the crap out of it, with the sterring working backwards! Put it on the rubrail one time and came back in. Less than 24 hrs later we were going down the Chesapeake Bay running 2 impellers to a guy that sucked up a ton of sand. I remember the boat coming up the road to the shop after they went to get gas in it for the initial fire up, talk about a kid at Christmas! Boat wasn't finished so we hung out while they put in the cupholders and filled all the fluids.Love it like I just got it.
