Re: good engine builder

I was a relative cad consumer for many years, until it took 2 days at NAPA to get a starter? . . . Let em die with grace and build something not 50 years old to begin with! SBC/bbc starter is good throughout many many years. . . It's a shame that the parts counter guy didn't know those same Chevy s...

Re: ivo magnum on a mini

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...

Re: Anyone tried to build a hull out of poly ?

Don't kid yourself into thinking that UHMW does not suffer from thermal expansion/contraction. Most bad poly jobs are because it was not sufficiently heated. It 'grows' when it gets hot. If not sufficiently heated (read stretched), it will 'grow' later and develop waves rather than stay straight and...

Re: Blue iron poly??

You can typically buy the thickness your application calls for and/or what your wallet can stand.
While all manufacturers may not offer or have all sizes at all times, it is usually available in 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 and 1/2" afaik.
