Re: High School Airboat Build II

We sold that one and started another. We weren't going to do one this year but I had a Senior who wanted to do all the welding on the hull by himself . I just haven't posted any pictures yet. He has the hull done ( a little different style but he did a great job) , another group of students have the...

Re: Tube bending dies - center line radius?

We have bought dies from swagoffroad.com in the past, they have tubing rollers also. For those people that are using a harbor freight tube roller their rollers fit right on. We've bent t-bars, loops, etc. very easily.

Re: High School Airboat Build II

Well we found the problem ( BAD GAUGE). This last week my wife and I went for a quick ride on a small lake near by. We went through the normal routine, took it out on a 15 min ride and then the moment of truth. Slowed down to idle and watch the needle on the gauge drop down till it hit 10 psi and it...

Re: High School Airboat Build II

Sorry for all the pictures disappearing. I have used Photo bucket to put up my pictures on different web sites over several years and never had a problem but now they say I need to pay them 399.00 per year to do 3rd party hosting so that was a lot of work for nothing. I will try to figure something ...

It is smaller to make room for the steering crank. If I have time tonight I will try to take a picture with the crank on. There might be one in this post if you look through the pictures?

Re: High School Airboat Build II

He said we were a go. Then I called Mike Moeller from Holmen, WI to see if he could help out. He said ...
