Re: New to Airboats -Need advice

Sounds like heavy hull, under powered and under proped. My mini 12' hull is 212#, 85 hp engine and 70" 2 blade prop. Also, are you running skinny water?

How wide is your hull? Is it a flat bottom airboat hull?

Re: Circle H Airboat Build thread

Saw this build in the Circle H shop Saturday. Wow was my first impression. After closer inspection I must say that the attention to details and workmanship is some of the finest in the airboat industry. Beautiful project!!!

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.
