Mounting bushings Stinger Gearbox

Does anyone know where I can get the mounting bushings for the two bolts where the gear box bolts to the back of my engine stand?

Re: First Airboat Help!!

I agree. I bought a boat the same day that my divorce became final. My boat has an occasional problem but she never argues with me and does not contain when I am out late gigging, and has never threatened to leave me because I rode another boat.

Re: Ban Bear Hunts for 10 years!!

And you don't have to vote for him. Adam Putnam, current Agriculture Commissioner from a well established Florida farming/ranching family, is running on the R ticket, and he is pro-hunting, pro-hunting, pro-life, and will make a fine governor.

Re: Everglades Patrol

I read the Gladesmen book by Simmons and Ogden. A friend gave me the book. It is a great book, not because of the college professor authors, who collected a series of tales from real Gladesmen, but because each chapter is told by a Gladesman in their own words. The book paints a picture of how it wa...

Re: HAVE I MISSED SOMETHING?

I went down for the AAOF poker run. It was my first both for an airboat poker run, and an organized airboat ride. Had a great time and made some new friends, one of whom drove 70 miles each way the following week to save my ass when my radiator blew in the marsh north of the stick marsh! The band wa...

For your budget, you can get a really nice boat with few, if any, problems.

Carburetor Expert

If you need someone to tweak your carburetor to extract all of the power that you motor can produce, call Ed Mac in Broward. (954)881-5249. I was not getting all of the power that I thought that I should be getting from my MAS 383. Ed took the time to examine the entire fuel delivery from the tank t...

Re: Pacemaker ignition system

Apples and oranges. You calculate gallons per hour (GPH) by dividing gallons used by the hours run. This will give you an average over the various RPM range that you run that day. If you want to be really serious, run a fuel totalizer. You can then chart your GPH at various RPM levels to see where y...

Re: Airboat trolling motors

I have a Minn-Kota, 85 lb thrust on a 15foot GTO with a 383, that has a foot control which I never use. Its too easy to use the I-Pilot from my seat or hooked to my belt. The bonus is that you can launch and retrieve your boat without a helper or tying a rope to your trailer. It will run my boat for...

I did not know him personally, only here @ Southern Airboat. Back in the fall, as the discussions about presidential politics were boiling over, OlfArt acted as a man of honor and courage of conviction and did it without offense. I would liked to have known him.

Mine is intended to protect against brush and sticks puncturing the radiator when running willows or sticks. It is not intended to be bullet proof or to stop metal projectiles after bolt failure.

Re: Honeycomb Radiator Protector

I have not used that. I use aluminum gutter guards from Home Depot. They come in 5 or 6 inch width and cut to length. There is a ridge down one side that holds it off the radiator. I connect the pieces with tie-wraps and bolt the assembly to the radiator frame. Works really well and does not affect ...

Re: ON THE TRAIL OF THE ELUSIVE FLA. EVERGLADES APE-LIKE ENT

Back in 1962, I heard about a similar beast in the Everglades, only he was called "Seminole Sam." Never saw him, but they said he/it smelled really bad. Scared a lot of Tenderfoot Scouts in Troop 189.
