Sniper that is a good looking rig you have there :usa: Thanks for doing what you do! Prototype you do need to lighten up just a little buddy, Chill Bro.

Re: New to Airboats in Tampa

I run deep salt water (and shallow) without issue, and have for 40 something years now; using a variety of different styles and power airboats.

As with most anything; let common sense be your guide, and you'll do OK.

Re: Ideal hull shape to not hop or plow?

I had a boat years ago that would porpoise whenever you ran it just a little hard.

I moved the engine stand two inches forward (too much weight to the rear), and it never porpoised again.

Re: Painterchic bought an Engine... now I need help!!!!

My 88 year old Dad recently gave me his airboat, and I'd love to get some "Grandpa's Airboat" artwork done on the rudders to forever identify it as "his" airboat.

I have no idea what I'm going to do when he's gone...
