Right here is a good place to start, ask you questions and let us know what you need. Someone will sooner or later have a answer.

Re: 540 wont start.

Ted are you sure both were working before? One could have not been working and you didn't know it unless you do a mag drop test. Which is something a lot of people don't do.

Re: I'm Building 2 Stossel Boats with High Torque Motors

So going by the weight slip your boat weighs 11,200 lbs. A 540 is a bad ass motor but I don't think it's that bad.

Re: Broken stringer. Repair or replace?

If the stringer is broken there must be a reason. Problem I see with fixing something is, did water get into the stringer and wick farther. If your into it might as well go all the way and fix it right.

Re: Stringer resin ?

I'm sure in Jacksonville there are plenty of fiberglass repair shops. Go by a couple and talk to them about buying supplies. I used to sell to people all the time when I had a shop. Not to be judgmental but the strings are the backbone of the boat. You sure you want to learn a new skill there? Do yo...

Re: Stringer resin ?

If the boat is made with polyester why go to epoxy? Polyester was always easier to use for me and I believe you are referring to 1708 which I would use because it has mat attached and it is easier to wet out the woven. I have never replaced stringers on a airboat but have done a number of regular bo...
