We lost another good one!

Sadly, we lost another asset to our community and to all that knew him. Andy Mathews (username...Andybo) passed away this past Tuesday night. Andy used to own the Nitro Express race boat back in the sanctioned race days. Great guy and friend that we all will miss.

I bet that will be close to where you want it. That is a good looking prop, but it would look better without that ugly shirt! LOL!

Re: Installing a prop on a 05 40 aircraft engine

Welcome! I run a SV 540 with 10:1 compression. Sounds like you want the same results as me....ground push over speed. I have tried numerous props over the years, and have settled with a 74" NGQ. Good luck, and keep us posted.

It is best to shut it down with fuel cut-off rather than with mags.

Re: LOOKING FOR A WATER CHECK IN THE MICCOSUKEE RES

Was not specifically in the Res, but was in 3A South over the weekend. Went as far north as the tower (swimming hole) and there was plenty of water. Did not bump ideling in and out of the canal.

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

While you had her apart, you should have put some air ride on that thing! I'm running a similar boat, and put air ride on a couple years ago. I didn't go full on like Dave Simpsons boats, but replaced the front hard connection points with adjustable air shocks and it takes that sharp jarring out of ...

Riding in Citrus Co

I was just up in the area for the first time this past weekend. I did not have my boat, but have heard for years about the riding up there. After seeing it, I'd love to go up there and ride sometime. Where would be a good place to put in and get started. Also a suggestion on where to stay. Thanks in...

Re: Best prop for heavy boat 540 lycoming

I don't think you would want the h for a heavy boat. I would suggest an NGQ or something wider than an h in a 3 blade configuration.

Re: Arbuckle Creek

I live near there and love the Arbuckle. It is definetly one of the prettiest places you'll ever ride. You need to go before the water gets too high. It is pretty "hairy" at times when she gets to flowing hard. The RR is plenty high to get under.
