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...

Glad to hear you were able to get the little guy primed. Obviously, that would not have been possible if you had not had the foresight to have him in the boat!

That claim is no more believable than the Washington Compost's recent declaration that George Soros does NOT covertly finance these libtard, Kavanaugh protesters. Maybe they all have that in common; perhaps they were riding the short bus the whole time, and never had a clue. That would explain a num...

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...

Chances are that I may be wrong, and/or things may have changed, but I don't believe they will bolt up to a Caddy without an adapter plate.

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.

Re: heavy flywheel

Not only do I agree with the previous assessments, but would point out that the 'lack of snap' associated with the increase in weight of the rotating assembly is only going to be more pronounced the smaller the engine is. It would be far more typical for a guy with the flywheel to be looking for a f...

Unless I'm missing something, that link and associated story are from an incident in Feb. 2015.

I hope the optimism on the injury front is applicable in this current case as well

It sounds like there is a reasonable likelihood that the bottom is not straight, flat and true. There are two means of making that determination: --> The first would be to run a string line under the boat along the bottom and check for gaps between the string and the hull.

Agreed. Thinning it any at all will deplete its' useful attributes exponentially.
By the time you attained paint viscosity it will have been rendered completely useless.

Again, what is your application? There is something for nearly any need.
