If you only have room for a 66 try a 3 blade. My buddy ran a 3 blade sabre on a 180 and it had great snap and worked great on a very light ricochet glass hull. Most of the time a dealer will let you try out a prop before you buy one to see what you like.

Slick bottom is a lot more slippery than poly anyday especially when it's really hot out, and your boat will handle better with slick. Poly is much more durable, I have to take my boat apart at least 2 or 3 times a year and $200+ for materials each time adds up. But I'm running a little 4 banger and...
Sell the gheenoe and buy an airboat. You cant hardly stand in one of them things without it tipping over, much less put a prop that will produce so much torque. And where would you plan on putting say a 60" prop on a boat 2 feet wide?
Take a look at stratusleds.com ,they have a 100 watt led with a parabolic aluminum reflector that makes a set of truck headlights look like a little night light. I believe it puts out 13000 lumens out the front. They can be run off battery or plugged in. It comes as a "kit" but only takes a few minu...
I think keeping the bottom flat is important, I tried to make my bottom flat on my boat when we did the new stringers, and it still has a little hop to it, i opted to keep the poly on my hull ( for ginnie springs trips) so i just shimmied the poly and all good. Now if you bury the pump deep in the w...
I think you're referring to my jet jon rowdy1, it's a 12' with a yamaha 760 in it. Runs pretty good about 42 mph, but yes hes right it loves to slide, if it has a decent amount of weight in it and you slow down to turn it actually turns pretty good. I dont have any pics right now but will try to pos...

Probably easier to try to and get a lighter hull and rigging. Otherwise you can have the case machined for bigger jugs and crank. And theres lots of other things that make a good airboat run right, the right prop, right thrust angle, what bottom is on it and if the bottom is true,maybe a Jack or 2, ...
It's a sacrificial anode.helps prevent electrolysis on your hull.For boats that normally stay in the water. A big tour boat is the only airboat that I would think that ever needs one (Stays in water).Any boat that touches salt water should have one for sure. Ive probably changed a 1000 of them thing...
2 ounces a gallon and this was on an old c10 Chevy. Engine builder said to do it so I did. Ran like a bat outta hell and never skipped a beat. Truck had a low gear in the ass and never fouled out 1 plug.
So help me out folks... never been down there and dont know where to go. Gps coordinates would be great. Do I need the guzzler f 250 4x4 or can my little ranger get it done? Dont wanna get stuck pullin out. Thanks.
Kwan can you post up the link for the water down there? I have never been on the Kissimmee chain, is there any water in the marsh? I think with all the rain there may very well be.
