Re: Old airboat, new driver, and problems

Depends on how deep your pockets are. A carburetor is for the most part simplistic and if/when it decides to sink you don't have to worry about electronics and etc. however efi offers a wide range of tuning that is unmatched by anything else. I myself just vote for simple that way if something happe...

Re: Old airboat, new driver, and problems

If you go with the plan of rebuilding the junk yard motor the I would definitely change to a 383 stroker. If I were doing a basic 350 build I would pick up the motor that jegs has for sale, change cams and run it with whichever intake and carb I decide.

Re: Snipe hunting Gardner Cobb Marsh

Has there been any decent snipe hunting in Gardner Marsh? I'm looking to take my son and try to scare up a few and camp and cook them. Were y'all the guys in the green apache with the 220?? We talked with y'all at Osceola pavilion. Had the cottonmouth dd boat and the 180 Paul Jackson boat. How did ...

Re: Tell me your opinion

All good tips. I've been through countless old posts on here about dd boats. This thing rides great. It handles wakes in the canal like a tank. I just know it has a little more potential in it. It's pretty bare bones and not the correct combo right now. I'm changing props (currently wood) going to c...

I know there are like 500 posts about this but not one definitive answer so I figured I'd see what popular opinion and thought came up with. In a direct drive chevy 350,what carburetor is best overall? Changing my setup soon and am stuck on a couple of different thoughts. Currently running an edelbr...

That hull is looking awesome. Sure wish we had a class like this when I was in high school years and years ago. It sure would have been more interesting than taking apart a lawnmower engine in our shop class haha.

The weight on the tongue isn't actually too bad. It doesn't pull bad either. For what I got in the trailer I can't beat it.

Re: Help setting up trailer

Just looking at the pic that you posted it looks as if just a dovetail at the rear would be enough to dry load. If you wanted to put a roller at the point where the dovetail attached to the trailer it would help as the hull went up onto the trailer but not sure if that is really necessary. JMO That...

Trying to change my trailer up a bit and would like to know what some others have as far as trailer setups. I'm replacing the bunks on it right now.

Re: Lock out timing

I've built race setups in many of my drag cars I've had and cannot tell a difference in the unit I got off amazon and the msd unit I ran in my mustang other than price. I carry my old distributed in the box on my truck just in case anyways.
