Re: What manufacturers are still out there for glass hulls

While I admit to being a little prejudiced, I am likely not the only one thinking that list would be best researched/considered in reverse order. Not meaning to poke at any given manufacturer atop that list, but rather share my own preference for the couple at the bottom. While I don't know that the...

Re: Cadillac - Gear Drive Ratio

I will be very surprised if you get many (if any) affirmative responses to that question. As you are already able to surmise, such a setup properly done, would be an animal without question. :shock: As nothing more than a casual observer, I would say that while there are a few hard core Cadillac fan...

Re: Cadillac 500 vs BBC 454 motor mounts

Unless you have an odd man out housing (which is possible, but not seeming likely), I think you will find the one you have has both Chevy and BOP patterns as part of it's integral design parameters. Odds are with you that you will not need an adapter to go between the block and the belt housing. I d...

Sleepy Hollow joins Turner Camp

on the list airboat accessible venues that burned down. Just saw the tail end of this on the news, haven't found anymore on line yet. I hope (against the odds) that they don't end up like Turner's, and find themselves beyond building code challenged to make a comeback. This really bites. Getting to ...

Well, you confirmed what others have also figured out. It is nearly always more time and cost effective both, to come here first with questions, before you try to figure it out yourself.

Re: Ford 289 DD prop size

Generically, when all other things are equal, diameter trumps pitch. Given the subject engine and power level available @ 3k rpm, the difference is not worth getting a heartburn over, though. Still, with that having been said, a little longer would most likely be preferable. If at all possible it is...

Admittedly, I have not seen everything; but I have never seen one run acceptably on an airboat. Every one of them of which I am aware, has been very happily replaced with the first available option. The flex you reference seems to be such that they are unable to produce the required thrust. Small bo...

Re: 2 person jon boat: power to move the boat

From a practical standpoint, 16x3 would be a canoe, not an airboat hull. Any engine that would be operationally satisfactory would produce enough torque roll to turn it over. Why so narrow? There must be another consideration that you've not shared. As described, almost sounds more like submarine pl...
