Too Many Horses

Postby airboat angel » Sun Aug 03, 2014 10:35 pm

We took out the blower boat today with the awesome six blade water walker blades. Was a little worried about the rake on boat but decided to wind the motor up a little bit...and with the awesome performance of those blades at 5500 rpm's the boat was gps about 100 mph ... started to lift so i hit brake which caught a tussock lump - snatched me to the left - hit a bigger head of tussocks and laid me on my side!!! I did get thrown from boat but i am ok. Every body there jumped right in and flipped the boat up and pulled me to shore where i checked for water in cylinders and block - had none, so turned key fired it up and all was well. No one hurt and boat had not even a scratch. Drove it home and thought maybe we'll take rake off next time !!! LOL. But let me tell yall this - the water walker blades deliver - they performed better than any blade i have tried. Big hp boats - i would definately reccommend them. Any way i just wanted to post the story before it turned into a whole different saga. No big deal - all is good. Will be out again next weekend. Thanks to everybody there who helped. Thats what its about. All part of airboating!!! So thats what happened. Dragon Breath is still needing a little more test and tune - but running very good. Motor is definately dialed in - now a little hull adjusting. See ya out there .
Special thanks to Water Walker for the blades and hub to tame that beast.
:angel4:
oh yeah i wish someone would post a video of the run - not on its side !!! That would be great if anyone got it.

Fl cracker thats what people say about alot of boats. But aren't that fast. Not saying it isnt. Just what I have seen over the years. Like the pro mod ecotec chuck build that would never race me. Lol

word of advice if the boat is that fast don't be running it where you can hit a tussock! rake or no rake! that's one bad looking s.o.b. !

Dang false advertising!!!! I read the title and got ALL excited ....

Said to myself "...How in the hell can any man have too many Horses ..." Shoulda known it was you Car Motor types beatin' on your thermostats again....Ha ha ha !!!!

That is a badass looking motor BTW Angel. Glad no one got hurt when you got Bucked Off!!! But i think it might'a been more a case of a loose rein then too much horse

That boat couldn't do 100 mph being towed down the interstate...about like it has 3000 horse. B.S.!! And every gps I have ever used gave you exact moh not about mph....what did that GPS read about 55?? Come man lets get real...you come up with more B.S. than anyone I have ever heard. Just like your a dart dealer...I called and talked to them and they have never even heard of you and don't even have any dealer in the vicinity of you. Tell your lies somewhere else.

Hey Tony I really think you need to get YOUR facts straight before you go running lips. Do you need me to forward the DART dealer page to you? lol
Look under DART machinery under find dealer and we are in wildwood florida .... and as a matter of fact we are on it twice.

Looks like I was wrong there....when I checked a few months back it wasn't listed and they knew nothing of you...I even asked you then about it...still find it hard to believe you wipe out at 100mph and it just lays over on it side...no damage or anything. There's tons of pics of it on Facebook on it's side but none of it running...lol....I'm just the only one who will call B.S. when I see it.

OK lets get it right. I was not going 100 when it rolled. I was in the process of applying the brake and stopping.
And Tony I have been with DART for over 10 years so if you really did call them - they would definately know of me.
Yall can say whatever you want - the proof is in the boat.
I am not trying to out do anybody just enjoy building big hp and riding.
:angel4:
Like I said before there will be video soon. Or come watch in person.
I know the people that were there can tell you how fast that boat is. So you may wanna check with your facebook people.
For real I just wanna have fun and really dont like or want drama. And by the way I am a woman and motor builder. Cant we all just get along? lol
I was not driving the boat that day tho. But I will drive it when its time.
I try to be nice to everybody and yall dont know me personally - so quit !!!!
