Re: Stock 6.0ls

Stock, is a fool’s errand. The LS platform isn’t able to sustain the thrust pressure from prop force. You are going to destroy your 6.0L especially if this is a engine you are planning to run later with a gear box. Dave (Waterthunder) had a DD LS some years back he had to develop a proprietary thrus...

Re: New AirRanger Set up ?

Your asking a lot that boats huge and honestly I wouldn’t rev that LSA any higher than than you have too. Wet sand sucks you down and can be difficult to break lose. If it’s new call Faron at air ranger and he’ll give you a no bs answer

Re: 6.2 ls engine options

Call water thunder, that’s a big boat. Dave has developed an LS engine package that’s purpose built for tour boats. I know the old formula and suggested bbc vs LS On a large boat, however how many tour boats are under 15’ ??? doubt enough to build a purpose driven platform.

Re: Laying wire questions

It’s not difficult to see the issue with it. You want to run one go for it just stay the hell away from others. Get a 1/8” wire wrapped around that prop from striking an object or a weld breaking from cyclic fatigue and see that happens. I can promise you it will be much worst than if hit cage just ...

It would be safer to run a cage with no wire at all than to run one with just horizontal wire.

Re: Paint pain paint???!!

This is the zinc epoxy primer and activator, it’s quite expensive as it was close to $75 per gal and 15 for the little bottle of activator.

Re: Paint pain paint???!!

That’s enough paint to do the rigging and then some, but 1/2 gallon each is a bit on the skinny side and not much less on price. The primer actually goes further than the urethane. Like I said, if you want to save money, get the epoxy primer and then hit HD or Wally World for 2 Quarts of Rust Oleum...

Re: Are AGM batteries suitable for airboats? If so, which ones?

Personally I never run my boat on All unless I have used both batteries. I alternate between 1-2 between shut downs as to always have a fully charged cranking battery to get me home or to jump another’s boat/truck. Or I run on one battery one day and switch to 2 the next.
