I guess it is a good thing I did "NOT" say it was a "multiple spark discharge" module. I could have gotten my head taken off! Sorry.

Re: Alumminum primer

I use PPG Epoxy Primer DP50 it is a non-sanding primer. Once it's on it's like concrete. Kind of pricey $100 a quart but it goes a long way.

Re: What alloy aluminum is typically used in airboat hulls?

For welded hulls 5086 or 5083 for the bottoms and 5052 for the rest. 5052 is cheaper and easy to get. 5086 and 5083 are special marine grade. Not sure about riveted probably 7075 or something like that. :dontknow:

Re: Should a motor be level, high, or Low in the rear

Must be the bottom then. I will have to check it. I took it to Kissimmee Saturday night and there was a lot of mud and green grass. Kind of sticky but no problems. It porpoised more than ever and I really had to use the trim tab. I am setup with a rear side by side driver and two side by side single...

Should a motor be level, high, or Low in the rear

I have a 14' Gilileo wide nose with a LS and gear box setup. Boat seams to be picking up the rear of the hull. Motor is low in the rear now. Just thinking of leveling it out and see if I can free it up a bit on the hill. Buddy Gilileo said level to 1/8" high in the rear. Where is your motor?

I have a Crankcase Evacuation System and baffles in my valve covers. No problems now but it used to blow the dipstick out of the tube. I can get you some pics if you need.

Re: Lazer style hull builders

My father in law just got a 13'-5" Lazer from Gilieo. I think he said the big stuff was hand laid and the small stuff was chopped then rolled out. He loves the new boat. $1,900 I think.

Your rudders should be about 30" apart for a 79" prop.

How long is your prop? It sounds like your rudders may be too close to each other.

How can it shoot flames when you say it is lean? and how can only one side be lean from a carb?

It is probably just bad plugs one a cyl. I had the same problem once.

I had one do the same thing a while back. We had an extra starter so we it and had the same problem. I changed the gorund to a short pice of large welding and it works great now. The new ground pulls arround 220 amps at start.

Re: fuel tanks

A flat tank will suck air before a tall skinny one. Worse when your boat is not level. On a friends mud racing truck we used a Semi truck air tank standing up and no more fuel problems for him with a smaller tank than he had.
