Re: Have you ever shot a 4 Ga?

To my way of thinkin', a weapon like that takes all of the sport out of it. It would be like taking a howitzer to a turkey shoot. When a man comes home with a couple of nice Canada geese that he dropped with his 870 Wingmaster, that's hunting. I have no idea what to think about a monstrosity like t...

Re: Recommendations please!

What does the dyno sheet say? Seems to me you would want to match that with box and where your props like to run, and what is the max rpm your engine builder recommends. Talk to gto they should be able to give you some good advice.

Re: Kayaking in area 2?

Everybody knows that canoes and kayaks always have the right of way and can do no wrong. Just ask one of them and they will tell you that you have to watch out for them and heaven forbid you ever create a wake that might swamp them.

Re: Already time for a 496 rebuild

Get one from gto or blueprint that is built for airboat with a warranty. GTO has 2 year unlimited hour warranty on an airboat. Most local shops offer zero warranty if you put it on an airboat. If I remember right gto will even pay shipping both ways if you have a catastrophic failure that was not yo...

Thanks guys for all the great advice. I have decided what I am going to do. I am going to buy me a new wood prop and see how it does. I am going to learn to drive the thing before I get any more motor. If it needs more power I am probably going to find be a 500 Caddy and setup a DD. I will post an ...

Put on a decent set of mufflers and there is a pretty fair chance you might have to add a little pitch. Might be worth a try. JMO

Re: looking to buy first airboat...is this a good deal...

I have plenty of experience running over stumps. You want a wide boat atleast 7'6" preferably an 8' and I would say no less than 15'. When you pull up on a stump and slide off there is a serious pucker factor going on, especially in deep cold water. It sounds like you will be running in water w...
