Rudder support failed and rudder got into my prop. You can imagine what it did. Need a 72” two blade LHR sensiche. Have hub but need both blades. Take what I can get but had q blades on it. Thanks.
Thanks snookstalker for info. I have decided that will be the way I do it. Got bolts but having problems finding ss wood screws. Found #14x11/2 but can’t find #18x3/4 that I need. Any ideas or just cut long screws? Btw long screws cost $1.10 each.
Whoa Slidin gator!! I wasn’t “bashing” anyone. I simply read their warranty and the limitations they placed on it. When I saw what they said I then exempted myself due to the fact that my circumstances were beyond their limitations. Don’t hold it against me for being honest.
Didn’t even try after reading small print. What I was trying to convey to everyone was that you keep it realistic. I wanted the best but turns out it wasn’t the best for an airboat.
Purchased a garmin 742xs and sunk boat in 12’ of fresh water. Recovered boat twenty four hrs later. Chart plotter was full of water and sand. Warranty said waterproof to 3 feet but doesn’t cover. Don’t spend more than your willing to loose. $850 lost. Worked great till it didn’t anymore.

RIP list. Amp gauge ,100%duty solinoid that was use for master switch&gps system. Other than that it's up and running great. Lesson learned and paid for so it's back to school. Ain't life grand!!
Yes sir it fired up. We pulled bottom plugs and cleared cylinders then drained crankcase. Flushed with gas then diesel. Drained carb bowl replaced drain plug and put Four quarts oil in and spun engine without spark plugs. Drained that oil and filled with new oil. Installed plugs and fired it up. One...
Thanks for info. Dried it out and it works fine. That's one darn good system!! Now if new garmin 742xs has same results I will be happy. It was fresh water and only about 12' deep. Guess it was bound to happen sooner or later.

My rig acts like that when I run my trim tab down too far. I need it in deep water but put it up running skinny. That trim tab will sure make mine squirrelly.
