    LS Motors.

    I have two friends who’re running LS motors in their airboats, and my son is having a new one built with an LS motor. They seem to run real good.

    New to airboats - Looking for a fisher

    I have an 18X8 hull with a 425 HP 454 CID motor, with a 2:1 reduction belt drive. The boat was built in ‘06, and is stiii doing fine now. Fishing four out of it isn’t a problem, and throughout it‘s entire life the boat has been run in salt water.

    Distributor Timing Advance

    Grandpa's Airboat

    The wife and I had a great day fishing today. We didn't catch any fish, but still had a good time out on the water. It was our first time out on the airboat since my Dad had passed it on to me. He had me doing all the driving the last couple of years, and my son and I had done a bit of work...
