If your harder to steer one way as opposed to the other, cable is not going to help.

Re: Tips on brazing cage wire

Make a T out of 1/2" conduit. The top should be around 12 inches and the downside 24 to 30 inches. On the long side flatten it and put a small notch in it. when brazing the wire you put the notch on the wire and you lean against it to hold the wire to the conduit. Adjust the lengths to where it...

Re: Glassing in stringers

I always bedded my stringers in resin and micro balloons, also known as Qcells. It fills any voids between stringer and hull. layer of glass does this too,just my preference. Definantly give your stringers a radius on the top it will make rolling it down easier. You can also use the micro balloons t...

Great work to you and your students. When is it going to the water? You inviting the ones that worked on it? Sort of like a field trip.

Re: First Airboat Help!!

So does that mean if he took the Steel Flex off it . . . it be like it had no engine at all ? ... :scratch: Sorry Deno, If you have poly it's going to be slick, so there is no reason to go any farther. If the hull has nothing it will get stuck faster than if you have steel flex 2000. Regular steel ...

Re: First Airboat Help!!

Whats it got on the bottom? You might have said but I don't feel like rereading. If poly than you have some sticky stuff. If bare glass that can be a problem.A coat of steel flex 2000 will make it seem like you added another engine. Lot cheaper than a engine package.

Re: Primer for a glass hull?

Duratec Clear Hi-Gloss Gel Coat Additive can be added to gel coat and you will get a shiny finished look. It will spray thru a normal gun, buy I use a cheap harbor freight gun because if you don't spray fast enough and clean it quick you lose the gun. No primer needed if you go this way. Prep is the...

Re: 6 blade warp drive on a 0320 150 hp

I personally have a Sensenich Q on a little more than stock 160. It is about as quiet as your going to get. Other props push better but it is quiet.

Re: First Airboat Help!!

Did he say it was a 150? Could be 160. 15% sounds a little high. The warp drive is going to sound like a weed eater no getting around that. But if you get it cheap enough and it is what he says it is, you can change the prop. Sounds like your knowledgeable around engines to know if something is runn...
