Re: Poly for a better price.

Someone on hear a while back mentioned they used brass nylock nuts to prevent galling. Haven't tried it myself but this is my 3rd year of fishing with my poly and it will have to be changed this summer.

Re: 15x7 engine choice

With a 7' wide hull you don't have a lot of flat planning bottom and add to that the weight of BBC. Gaining 25-50 is great but losing weight would be better. BBC with iron heads is around 700lbs or more, aluminum ls 425lbs. Dropping 250lbs off the back of an airboat is huge specially with a narrow r...

What he said. ^^^ Better be built correctly for more RPM then originally intended or it will not last long. If built right 1.77, 2.00, 2.09 or even 2.38.

Re: Another 500 DD

Swamp, I believe when it comes to woody's (fixed pitch ) it is Diameter, bolt pattern and the pitch number which is how far the prop moves forward it 1 turn with no slippage if am not mistaken. Remember props do bad thing when get close to the speed of sound so be careful just stating max rpm. They ...

Re: Boat run dry better with motor forward or back?

There are a lot of variables when you go switching hulls and riggings to start making apples to apples comparison. My 2 cents would be motor as low as possible, prop back close transom (you used to see 3, 4, 5 and 6" prop adapters) to allow motor to be a little farther forward with prop still back b...
