Re: New To Airboats

You'd be better off starting with a smaller boat and learn how to run it safely before you jump into a big hp boat with 4 other people on it.You can get in trouble and hurt quick not knowing what youre doing jmo.

Re: o-360 buring too much fuel?

Think of it like an outboard motor on a bass boat. Trim motor up bow goes up trim motor down bow goes down.

Re: o-360 buring too much fuel?

I know it doesn't sound like it makes sense but thats what you do to get bow up.With the motor angled up on the rear once on plane it keeps the bow up.

Re: o-360 buring too much fuel?

Sounds like a big boat for im guessing a 180hp 0360? Is it riding on its nose? You may have to raise the back of moti r to bring the bow out of the water more if its plowing

Re: o-360 buring too much fuel?

Yea really I ran 30/35 miles one day with me and my gf's dad cooler and extra fuel on my boat.10'6x7 ricochet with 0300 and still had 2/3 gallons left once we got back to ramp I have a 20 gallon tank too.He probably has a bad fuel leak or its running way to rich and just burning too much.

Re: 75 south to the swimming hole in the glades??

Put in at the 35-1/2 mile marker ramp south side of the alley (75) take trail from boat ramp south to the first trail on your right.Follow it out you'll pass like 6/8 camps that will be to your left as you're on the trail.After the last two camps you pass a little longer ride you'll start getting in...
