Re: hull handling?

My 2 cents, Bud I would just unbolt the rigging from your 15 x 8 hull, And bolt it to one of those 18 x 8 hulls. You have a 496, the previous post has a 502 in his boat and it looked like it had hard side's and roof and glass windows, as yours is soft sided and vinyl windows. You start lowering your...

Re: 220gpu leaking oil

also you have the oil in your cooler as well, so you'll have what ever is in the sump plus your cooler. each motor is different, its something you will have to what and learn.

Re: New And Need Help With A build

gofishch,
That sounds like my boat.

Take KR23 advice and do your homework, study what type of hull you want or need and then put the h.p. to it. I run a 15x8 and its not a raceboat by any means or a d-10 dozer for pushing tree's over but its one comfortable fishing and hunting boat.

You got to secure them on a smooth surface or wrap them in something they chaff real easy. We used them on winch's with a straight pull only, or b...
