Air leaks will make it run lean. They don't have to be big leaks to do it.

Re: New Hull Composite

The new lighter materials have great strength and it is amazing the pounding they can take. The down size is because they are so thin they lack the thickness for fastners to hold. Screws tend to waller out, especially self tapping.

Re: Front or rear driver ?

I don't think there is a fit all answer. I just rebuilt my boat and had to ponder this same question. Froging would be a lot easier from the front, as you could use a shorter gig pole which would put you closer too them. The other advantage is you are not looking around anyone. I went with rear stee...

Re: Area 3a is open

This is what they did last year, kept us out for high water and kept pumping water west after they opened it. Not long after that no water again. Then closed it for low water and kept it closed until it was high again.

Re: Lycoming

You might try some of the people who advertise in the airboat directory. Tell them what you said here. One with a hole through the case is fine. Or you could buy a airboat with a 0360 on it, use to do what you want to do then resell it. But be careful you might try it out and lose interest in the pl...

If you are planning on replacing trailer in the near future and can live with extra hanging off the back. Move the axel forward to take care of tongue weight. Looks like winch is as far back as you can get it. The trailer is going to have a value when you done with it so I would keep the tongue the ...
