Re: Sensinich or water walker

Iv got a 160hp 0-320 75089 Pistons,
I ran a 70" cypress for awhile. Good push lots of snap.
I now run a 70" signature. Lots more push less snap.
Night and day for running ground.
I use the cypress blades as backups now.
Try before you buy

Re: Dry loading air boat

If you have a tilt trailer be careful of the pivot point where the trailer slams down,
Balance n let her down easy keeps the trailer healthy

Re: Replacing poly on an aluminum hull.

cant beat the price, made mine out of aluminum but the time to weld it up and drill the holes is worth buying one ready to slap gauges in.
