Re: 12-14'/Rotax 582 Performance Questions

I built a 6'x12' mini with a 503 dual carb rotax on a alum hull. It performs great, runs 40mph with two guys. I'm currently doing some changes to it. Overall I'm happy with it. Need anything let me know!

Mine or did you try to upload a pic? Mine will move on dry ground when I have a fresh coat of quickslick.

Re: O-235 for Caddell's mini

I study a lot of others builds just to have a better start. I'm just a welder that likes to do it different. There's a market up here for smaller airboats. Since my main business is in the oilfield this is just a hobby. Wish like hell I could built boats for a living, and make Money! It's a blast an...

Re: O-235 for Caddell's mini

Yes I have to much on the engine stand. But it being my first build I felt like I needed to go a little over then not have enough. I'm currently building a whole new boat and probably going to make it wider than my first one to accommodate the bigger motor. Less is more in a lot of situations. I rea...

Re: O-235 for Caddell's mini

I put QuickSlick. Works great! We have some spots were the bottom of the river is shell. When it's fairly new it works great! Kind of hard to keep it on with running over shell ripples.

Re: O-235 for Caddell's mini

Re: O-235 for Caddell's mini

First off I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel! What I'm doing is taking my ideas and making it perform! I'm running a 50hp rotax that most said it wouldn't perform! It runs 36mph with 2- 230lb guys!!!! Show me what you've built, from scratch, and don't forget a pic of "your" boat! Anyone ...

Re: O-235 for Caddell's mini

My boat planes really quick right now. I just need to be able to run dry since the river is so low. I hate having to push! Lol O-360 is what I'll look for. Thanks

O-235 for Caddell's mini

I found a 108hp lycoming for sale. What I'm curious about is how powerful will the motor be. Is it enough motor for my 6' X 12' all allum? That's a little over double the horsepower what I'm running now, and top speed is 36mph. That's with 2, 230lb guys, ice chest and fishing gear. Obviously it won'...

Re: Caddell's Build!

Got my transom cut and bent. Ready to cut out old one. Then I'll have to chop rudders, add micro anchor then off to the water!
