Re: SA slower but still kicks ass

I spent the weekend riding in the Glades. Fishing is good. We caught lots of bass. God knows how many oscars, mayans, and other panfish we actually boated. Riding was fun the water level is dropping fast and trails are slick as can be. There was a good showing of folks out at the swimming hole and b...

Re: AGI vs AGS

Thanks for the link- Mine is holding up great I have the extra T stringer package. It is 14' with an 82 JW. The boat is fast and floats extremely well. It also runs dry ground at a very low RPM. I load it down at times and it still floats and handles well.

Re: Anyone running Sensenich JX? If so what pitch & WOT RPM

I ran my 82 three blade JX with a 2.68 box at 5200 for a day. My cruise speed was outstanding but I can feel the sweet spot at 5400. I am going to pull some pitch and let them eat with the wot set 5400-5500. It was noticeable how much faster the prop spooled up when the WOT was set on the 5400 mark.

Re: Anyone running Sensenich JX? If so what pitch & WOT RPM

I ran the JX at a WOT of 5600 and 5400 with a 2.68 gearbox. I honestly feel as though the boat performed better with the WOT set to 5400. Its an 82 JX and the prop rpm is 2014 at 5400 and 2089 at 5600. I felt like I was moving noticeably less wind at with 2 degrees less pitch and the higher tip spee...

Re: Heading south sometime this week

The west side of lake Okeechobee is always open and has plenty of good riding. The Ocala area has some very cool spots up and down the St. Johns river.

I put some long tube norman clay headers on my 383 and the torque increase mulled my seat mounts off. I switched engines and still have those headers, they have about 6 rides on them. Norman Clay has been building them long enough they are done properly. I had the bullet mufflers welded on to the he...

Re: Looking for coordinates to Old Jeep at Sand Point

You can see the color change on google earth where the Glades go from a marl brown to a sandy tan color. It starts just north east of Choctaw Hammock

Re: Lets talk about harmonics

I've had harmonics explained by professionals and the problem is that as airboaters we demand too much from our props. When it comes to Aircraft the selected motor has designated prop options. If FAA approved mod are made to the engine to increase Hp the prop has to be matched to the modification. W...

Re: Airboaters Alliance Time to Unite

I am located in South Florida. I have noticed a decline in cooperation amongst airboaters, a decline in club numbers, and a decline in group rides. As a young kid I rode mostly with an old group of Gladesmen. Most of my riding crew were about 20 years older than myself, many or my good riding friend...

Re: Anyone running Sensenich JX? If so what pitch & WOT RPM

I am almost back on the water. I dropped a 2.68 into the boat with a LS418 for power. When I dial my boat in I am going to set the pitch to keep my WOT at around 5600. I will update what degree it ends up at Im going to start at 24 to 26 degrees and dial it in from there. It is pushing an 82"JX.
