The TACO Marine Project Boat on Ship Shape TV will be ripping out the boat’s interior as well as the rails. This project boat is an exciting 2 year-long project with Ship Shape TV that encompasses upgrading a 1989 Pursuit 2650 boat to 2016 Model Year standards using the latest, most current TACO Marine products; rub rail, new t-top, seating, LED lighting and rigged with sport fishing equipment.

Once completed, the boat will be auctioned off with proceeds being donated to a non-profit organization. With the help of Ship Shape TV and other companies in the marine industry, like Taylor Made and Yamaha, this boat will surely be in high demand.

As a family-owned and operated company since 1959, TACO Metals (the parent company for Taco Marine) has established itself as a global leader in the recreational marine industry. Innovative, quality products backed by industry leading warranties with exceptional service is the way TACO Marine does business with all OEM and Aftermarket customers.

    I would like to do such a project, but first wanted to know if you solved the problem of rear end squat. So much weight and the bracket needs the flotation to float it.Does the boat squat still?


    • Hi Wesley,

      Yes, we were able to solve the problem by adding some weight to the bow of the boat. Good luck with your Project Boat! We would love to know how it works out. We also offer DIY Vinyl Rub Rail Kits and have how-to videos for replacing old Rub Rail on our YouTube channel youtube.com/tacomarine. Please let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks!


  2. instead of auctioning it off, have a raffle 100.00 per ticket when you sell 2500 tickets pull the tickets that way the charity will get a guaranteed 250000.00 and everyone has a chance at owning this great boat.
