Re: Camo Wraps for Airboat - Vinyl Graphics Kit

I have only had mine on the boat since October but its holding up great and still looks good .. yes I have scratched it and ripped it a couple places, but the nice thing about it you can’t tell.
The stuff is very tough if you ask me. So yes…. So far so good….

It wasn’t even a 383. I got screwed…. but taught me...

Re: 454, 350 swap

Your high cruise is due to your heavy boat and a prop that likes tip speed more than low end push by changing to an engine with less power and more weight and still using the same prop & gear ratio combination you will make your problem worse. As of now you would be better of to get a better lo...

Re: 454, 350 swap

Well I would think the 454 I have would produce 300 hp the way it sets now. What would push my boat better a 400 hp sbc which I have or a 300 hp bbc which is a guess but To me it seems like the bbc with more displacement would hold its own. My boat went on a diet over the summer and it lost around 5...

I think it would be a good choice on a hull this size (17') the weight difference is right around 100 pounds between sbc/bbc the extra low rpm torque would be a welcome addition as well. opinions will definately vary on this subject, heres a recent thread that may answer some of your questions/conc...

454, 350 swap

Motor questions. I have a new rebuilt zz4 350 with a few mods that is pretty strong in my opinion. The 350 is on a heavy 17’ diamond back with grass rake. The boat runs great but, when I pitch my prop to give me the best ground push that I am happy with…. My cruise rpms go to shit…. to high (deep wa...

Re: 383 Stroker

Re: 383 Stroker

that block was made from 86/94.there were some changes in 96 but i still think they should bolt up .piston to vavle won't be an issue if ther flat tops need to check water passages useing a headgasket. and pushrods one from each motor that should tell ya what you need to know or a good start :wink:...

A group here and there but that’s about it. When I was younger I used to shoot limits of teal not to far from Smith p...
