Re: Pulling an airboat???

Why would it suck? What's the difference besides towing with another airboat or an outboard?

Re: tragedy at Holyday park?

Gerald- I don't think we have ever met and I don't post on here a lot but your view on this is really screwed up. It doesn't matter who was right or wrong or what was said. It takes a complete p@ssy to run down an 83 year old man. For that the kid deserves a bullet, not a trial and three squares a d...

Re: Need advice with steering

The pivot point on the rudders is 5 inches from the leading edge. There is one bar between the rudders. We added the longest bar (the one going to the trailing edge of the rudder) on the crows foot trying to fix the problem. It did not work.

Need advice with steering

First time doing crows foot steering. Steering works smooth until you put power to them and the the rudders want to center up. And you cannot fight the stick. I think I've done something wrong with the angles causing a leverage problem. Please look at the pictures.

Re: 21 injured in SW Dade airboat crash

It's hard to tell from the video but the starboard vessel does not have the right of way due to being the starboard vessel. In the video it looks as though the starboard vessel is overtaking the other vessel which means he yields the right of way. It's all about the true angle and speed which from t...

Re: GO-435

Those are some big props to swing on a 212hp motor. You can probably run a 5 blade 66 or 68" Warp Drive on it.
I have an O 435 with 480 jugs and angle valve 540 pistons in it and it swings a 68" five blade.

I don't know the rules on County permits but there are 100s of gators by my house. I see people of Latin decent dragging them down the road behind golf carts and 4 wheelers all the time. Just google Everhigh Acres in Hendry County.

Stinger Gear Box

I have a Stinger 2.38 to 1 box and am thinking about going to a 2.68 to 1.
Can I have the gears changed and if so is it worth it? Or do I just sell my box and get another.

I run them on my step hulls but the actual law states that you must run an automotive style muffler.

Re: prop explodes

I don't know why it happened but I was right there and he was turning that thing out. When the blades went through the hull it slowed the boat down by easily 25mph in a secound throwing him out the front. We got the whole thing on video. Glad to see him walk away. There were some quick boats out the...
