Re: Rudder Coated with Bed Liner

Spend more time on body work and paint. It will look a whole lot better and you don't have to worry about drag.

I would love to have a crane truck to help with the lifting, You shouldn't have any trouble getting it back together. Don't forget to count the tools.

Re: Convince me to build a BMW airboat!

A 13 to 14 foot glass over wood and 95 HP to push it. Your asking a lot out of that BMW. I would think .090 aluminum in the 10 to 11 foot range would be a better fit. Maybe a 10 foot Gore type hull.

Re: Convince me to build a BMW airboat!

If your looking for 90 hp why not just use a Continental PE60? You don't need a gear box and you don't have to listen to it turn 7250 for 95 HP.

You might want to add a cable to catch it if it comes off. It will save prop. More than one have come loose.

Krahammer I just took my boat out of my companies name and put it in my wife's name. She now leases the boat to the company. A company can't gift it but the company can sell to someone for $10 dollars. God forbid it were to happen, but what would happen if you had a incident like what happened a fe...

Re: Federal Wild and Scenic River designation 4 Kissimmee River ?

Absolutely no way I would want Feds to get their hands on this. Would rather see it made into a parking lot. At least then you could use it Big cypress is a good example along with everglades national park. And if managers get their way Biscayne national park. You want to get kicked out, give it to ...
