Newbie with a few questions

Postby bfdast » Sat Jul 18, 2015 11:04 pm

Newbie here and I have a couple questions. I've tried searching but no luck sorry. I have a 10' Jon boat and would like to make an airboat. I know that's not the best setup but it's what I have and I don't know anyone with a boat. I'm not looking for a speed demon nor a big boat just something to play with and learn. Not worried about looks again just something to learn and play with. I can find lawn mower engine all day but snowmobile is different. I bought a welder from a guy who had a snowmobile engine on a pirogue and it sparked my interest again. What kind of motor combo could I start out with, what can I look for? Ivan build the cage and all that but I'm stuck on motor and prop. Thanks in advance!

Look back through the miniairboat threads. There are many that will answer your questions about airjon projects. If done right they can be fun little boats.
