Place a 2x4 on the ground, smack your bang stick on top of the board. Test complete.

Re: Gig Heads

I have 4 of the four tines EZGIG on 4 different length poles. Will probably never need another, as these are really well made. Picked up 2 at Fastbreak in Okeechobee and 2 from Simple Heritage Outdoors in Bronson. I did hear that Nomytth (EZGig parent company) may be introducing a new gig pole, so I...

Re: Weight of airboat please.

Allan, if you remember, my hull is 12 x 6 on the bottom. However it only weighs 512 lbs with a full tank of gas. I think yours is a little heavy for the displacement. You might also check the bottom edge of your transom. If it is bent downward it my be pushing the back up and the nose over. Have Kat...

Re: Another build thread - From the ground up.

Getting close to delivery, like the attention to detail. I'm sure the owner will be happy with this build for years to come. Save me a slot soon for some rigging and cage fabrication.

Re: Rotax Engine Upgrades

I've been to Rotax Rick's shop several times. I never had any issues with the work he did for me. He allowed me to watch as he worked and answered any questions I had. I think the ultralight forums would crucify any work that endangered lives. JMO

Re: New to the group here, looking for a 583

Get mine from Rotax Rick in Naples Florida. Contact him through barnstormer website, piston engines, Rotax. I would suggest a C gearbox and clutch for 583. Habe that setup on a very light Alumitech 12' hull.

Since you posted this in the mini airboat forum I would suggest that you hit search in the top right and type in "plans". You will find a number of builds, some in great detail. The more information you give the more you get back on this forum.

Honest people you can TRUST
