Re: Advice for buildin aluminium hull.

I have a good news. I found the reason of hopping, the bottom had rising from the aft bulkhead to the transom about 5 mm. I installed the wedge between poly and the transom 4mm for all transom width and plus 4 mm at middle part (total 8 mm wedge at middle). The result was fantastic. The airboat no h...

Mroyak - Cool boat! What motorcycle engine did you use out of curiosity? It isn't mine, it's my buddy's boat (just close like your size) and he sold two. He used next motorcicle engines: 1) Honda cbr600rr; 2) Suzuki gsx1000; 3) Kawasaki Z1000. Props - 60"-70" 3 or 4 blades. I have Honda a cbr1100xx...

Finally, put a damn cage on that dangerous thing, this ain't the 1950's anymore. Holey crap that thing is dangerous as it is :slap: Also, I will never understand using a steering wheel on air drives when a stick is so much more responsive.
Good remarks! :thumbleft:

Re: Advice for buildin aluminium hull.

I made two hull jacks and cut the first bulkhead, but didn't solve the porpoising problem. Perhaps they incorrectly placed. Need to reinstall the first behind the fuel tank or make third. Unfortunately very restricted with time.

Re: Advice for buildin aluminium hull.

Center of hull in stern perhaps 2-4 mm (1/16-1/8”) bubbled out/down vs port/stbd rails is the goal for shape. How you get there is up to you. Good! Noted. If possible provide inforrmation about distance from transome to rear part of stand on your airboat. Thanks! P.S. 2 mm is so small that I could ...

The hull thickness is 2mm. It is reason why I instalsted beams. I wanted have stout hull. Before any action I would check the bottom with a straight edge or string line. If I correctly understood your advice use the two t-bars (runners) port and stbd for bolt connection with beams (bulkheads). I was...

It is fine to adjust the engine angle, just don’t add a big plate to the stern. You should be able to sort it all out by tweaking the hull, prop/engine angle and weight distribution.
It is right remarks. I just feel that I had mistake with a hull size.
