Re: NEW TO AIRBOATS/HELP

Don't see how you have gone this far and don't have at least one, thing about pro drive water is important, not issue with airboat, you can go pay 60-70k and get new or buy low hour one for 20-30, it is a buyer market in just about everything right now, nice diamondback on SA for under 28k, 3 blade ...

Re: 427 LS pushin a 3 blade s pitch limits

Guy has been doing this for 16 years. Puts wraps on 200+ MPH race cars, 93 cars total this year alone. Has printer set u...
