Re: New/Old Airboat Hull

Thanks Deano. I think I'll try that amber light. Hopefully I'll have some rigging pics soon. I had also forgot about all them damn honey-do's that don't get done when you're trying to get a boat built. Anybody got any advice for staying out of the dog house while you're building a boat? :D Rick Tel...

Re: Top Speed

I’ve had mine up in the mid-40’s a few times. That isn’t close to wide open, but it’s faster than I need to go.

I’d put ear muffs on mine before he was two, and he’d go right to sleep. When he was four, he’d sit in my lap and hold the stick; serious as all hell. Of course, I was the...

Hard to say with no pictures. Your best bet is to take it to a known propeller company and get their opinion. Be very careful - wood props are not as tough as carbon fiber and they can splinter and cause lots of damage when they blow up.

Re: Flags for other boats

I’ve seen a few kayaks with them that fish out in the salt marsh and creeks, but not nearly enough of them.

The few that have them have probably been run up on by an airboat, and figured out the benefits of having one.
