Re: Airboat Rebuild

That was kind of the mind set we had, do what we can with the motor we got, run it until something happens, then put a motor in there that gives you a $#!+ eating grin. We will try the 10 degrees and see what happens and hopefully have time to go run it next weekend... as far as the porpusing, the f...

Re: Airboat Rebuild

We will definitely load it down next time and see what all happens. I wish I could tell you what all speeds we saw, but we didn’t have the gps mounted until this last time out. I do know it would only run 23mph when we test drove it and that was just with an app on my phone, that was nothing but the...

Re: Airboat Rebuild

Test run went pretty good yesterday. Boy what a difference 15 degree mark made. We saw 4750-4800 on water and were hitting 32 mph, although it is the lightest the boat will prolly ever be, was just me and my brother, not hardly any gear, and very little gas... got a couple hours of stick time betwee...

Re: Best Lights for Saltwater

Light bars aren't going to cut it unfortunately. You've gotta get the flood lights. Try to stay away from teh amazon specials, either go with Southern Lite LED or Seelite bowfishing floodlights.120v or 12v. The 50 watts are fine, we ran those on my brothers mud boat with a platform for a good while,...

Re: Airboat Rebuild

We'll keep you posted on what happens tomorrow. I wish I could post a video of the one I took yesterday showing how quick the RPM's climbed but it was a solid steady climb.

Re: Airboat Rebuild

Hey guys sorry for taking a while to get back with you. We finally had some time to pull that lower bearing off and take that bolt out. We got everything back together this week and were able to test the RPM's at 15 degrees on the trailer yesterday afternoon. Saw a nice increase in RPM's from the 20...

Re: Airboat Rebuild

Well our testing/playing fell real short on Saturday after finally making it out. We had to shut it down because we thought we had some issues with the gear reduction. After getting a little time yesterday to look at it, there turns out to be a loose bolt inside the bottom pully just bouncing/rollin...

Re: Airboat Rebuild

Lol Prototype, I have no clue why they’re sideways. I noticed that when I looked at them on my computer. They’re right when you view the post through the phone though

Re: Airboat Rebuild

Thank y’all. Slidin Gator, I actually read that post a week ago or so and was surprised how similar it was... we have not done a compression test, it does have a holly 750 carb on it that we had rebuilt (runs like a spotted ape), not sure what cam or heads it has either. My brother used to race dirt...

Airboat Rebuild

First off, we’re new to the forum, glad to be here, and glad to finally own an airboat! I enjoy seeing all the support and input across this forum. Over the last several months my brother and I have been rebuilding a 2012 20’ x 8' deep hull Pathmaker that we picked up. When we got it, it only had a ...

Re: GPS Antenna Location

Thank y’all. Will be going up top on the platform like we originally planned. The platform is slightly lower than the top of cage, so it should’nt be too vulnerable to getting damaged by anything.

Re: GPS Antenna Location

We have a sight platform up on top of cage, and had planned on putting it on there somewhere, just wanted to see if others had a more ideal place.

GPS Antenna Location

I’m curious to know if anyone has recommendations for ideal puck locations on airboats? Although we’ve been fishing and hunting our whole life, my brother and I are new to the airboat world, including this forum, and glad to finally be here after riding on them here and there! We bought a used 20’ P...
