A/C engines converted to run on diesel.

This company is converting 4 and 6 cylinder aircraft engines to run on diesel and fly in a Cessna 182. I emailed them
to see if they want to put one in an airboat for trial purposes. They claim much better fuel economy.

Re: Ummm Yep WATCH THE NEWS

Well, I can see why it cost the man $22.5K for the pile of parts out in front of your shop. With your reputation, there isn't a hull or motor or trailer builder anywhere that would let you place an order without being paid in full up front. Now considering that, the customer must have a hull, motor,...

You might try Lew Ingle in Inverness. He's fairly close to you. 352-344-1934

You might want to take that number out of your book. He passed away over 4 years ago.

What is the smallest boat you could put a turbine on, and what price range are you looking at?

Not an airboat, but found a runabout that was made and imported from Sweden. 1980's vintage. Little to no use. Garage kept. Looks new. The boat is from an estate and has no paperwork, registration or title. Probably not Coast Guard certified, and is 15' long. Would it be possible to get a Florida re...
