Re: Running engine without prop attached

The engine could run warm/hot, because it won’t have the prop pulling air through the radiator.

Kissimmee water level

I’ll be headed to Kissimmee for the 4th and was wondering if the water has come up any or is it still dry as hell.

Stainless rigging polishing

I’m looking for a good place to polish my stainless rigging, I’m located about an hour south of Lakeland. I attempted to do it today, it was more work than I was looking for and didn’t turn out the way I hoped. I just don’t have the tie or patience. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: St Johns river riding

Thanks that place looks nice. I googled it, but it’s just shy of 4 hours away. I’m not ruling it out, but is there anything closer in the Christmas, Mims or Titusville area.

St Johns river riding

Im looking to do some riding on the St. John’s river. Where is a good place where I can park my camper and put my boat in the water. Something similar to Camp Mack on Kissimmee.

Re: Will 3 blade help

I was thinking about a new one. I haven’t found anything used that suits my needs. I wouldn’t mind a good used one. I’m looking to build a new boat in a year or two.

Re: Will 3 blade help

I’m not sure of the degrees but according to the pitch marks I am at about 4. I’ve tried it on 2 & 3. It feels like I’m dragging a truck behind me in the water on 2 or three. I’ve had it all the way up to where a 5 would be. It cruised good 2500rpm and got great fuel consumption, but didn’t have the...

Re: Will 3 blade help

Ok so the info I gave on the prop is incorrect. I just went by what the guy I bought it from told me. Being a newbie I didnt know any better. My prop is actually 78” tip to tip and not sure of the exact model. I couldn’t find any writing that would identify it. I do know the widest part of the blade...

Waterthunder engine prices

Does any one know what a waterthunder engine cost? I looked on the website and there isn’t much info on the engines or pricing. I emailed Dave and haven’t heard anything back, so I was curious if anyone might have an idea
I’m looking for and EFI LS engine with around 500 -600 HP.
