    Continental 0470 oil pan detail(broken dip stick)

    Just broke the dip stick on a Continental 0470. Luckily I have already bought a aluminum oil pan with a sight tube set up and now get to install. I briefly looked through a pdf(digital file) file someone has posted on here with a break down of the 0470 motor parts, but could not find a detail...

    electric fuel pump or mechanical or both?

    Recently bought a airboat with a dual mag 470gpu power plant. It came with an electric fuel pump. I read a post recently that someone used the electric fuel pump to prime and start the motor then switched over to mechanical fuel pump. Anyone run this type of set up? Seems like having two pumps...

    Creeks Too Narrow to Navigate?

    I've just bought my first airboat and am wondering if some of the creeks in our area are too narrow to navigate without damaging the CF prop(68" 3 blade WW super snapper). The creeks, which are actually mosquito ditches, are around 12-15 feet wide with mangroves on the banks hanging over the...

I was told the dark grey is harder than the black. Black seems to be most prevelent, so it must be good. We're...

    Polymer Installer in N. Brevard/Volusia

    Looking for the best polymer installer in the North Brevard/Volusia County area to attach polymer on a 14' Freedom Craft fiberglass hull. Any suggestions on the thickness would be helpful, too. We'll be running in marine areas with some oysters and shell bottom. I'm leaning toward 5/16" or 3/8"...
