The original Tango started out with a traditional transom, but performance was dissapointing. I decided to modify the transom and extend the running surface beyond the prop thinking this might keep the stern from digging in and would provide additional buoyancy. Worked like a charm. I was able to get up on plane with just a 3.5hp motor.

Here's a fine example of how you can customize a Tango Skiff. Starting with plans for the Tango 15, Morten Lovstad of Houston TX stretched the hull out and lowered the sides to create this very sharp looking flats skiff. Well done!
