Re: 220 pistons

I dont know the compression but am sure a few guys on here will. Its sitting in a box somewhere pretty and clean rea...

Re: o470 or 520 conversion

If you find yourself a nasty slow Palm Beach like this one, call me! Overall it was the best boat hull I ever owned. I dont know how fast you want to go but I didnt think it was slow. Lots of folks think they have a PB hull and I have checked out a few that were not even close. Be careful. http://i6...

Re: What prop for my 180 Lycoming??

set it at 2950 and you will really love it Set at 2950 on trailer or on the water? Is that pretty close to just shy of #2 on that 200hp Plum? I guess I could ask Dantheairboatman or DAGWOOD0520 too.

Need a buzzbox to time my mags this weekend.

If anyone in Palm Beach, Martin, or Broward can help a brother out I need to time my mags. I have watched it done a few times but don't have the buzzbox.

I dont know in GA but in FL you have our own Speed Wheelie and GPU Rick.
Danny @ Sawgrass Welding and Abner @ Keeners Engine and Machine Shop also carry what you need and would probably ship.

Re: some airboat info please

I just bought my fith airboat in about as many years. I saw this boat in person and the guy wants to trade or sell for a buggy. It looked like a real nice boat to me. I ended up going with something a little smaller and a lot cheaper but I probably should have gotten this one. Its on SA but no pics ...

Re: Fuel

If its a stock GPU save your money and run high mid or reg octane gas. If its got higher compression due to some mods then avgas is the way to go.

Good luck,

Try some other props. My old PB ran the dry with two men most places. It was an 11' 'er with 3H blades. My experience has been mainly with built up PE90's and O-360's. I wont put a wood prop on my boats anymore. Tough to beat a used warp drive if you got a small budget and are making the jump from I...
