Re: Dan the airboat man

He built a whole boat for me and I was very happy with the results. I did feel like the man had a lot of great knowledge he was willing to share. When my boat was finished is about the time it seemed like things went south. I was thinking I heard he got involved in the oil industry after the fall ou...

Re: Best hull size for a 520

I loved my hamant hull with my old 520 boat. It was 13'6" by 7'6" wide.

Re: What aluminum hull to buy?

I miss my old Hamant!!! It ain't the cheapest, but one of the best!!! It was 13'6" x7'6" with a real 520. It was an ultralight. Pics in my gallery.

Re: Temporary Withlacoochee River restrictions.

I wonder how high the water is by the outfall canal? Gator bait there is a boat ramp off a side road off SR 200. If you put in there you would drive by stump knockers on your boat . They have signs right by the bridge at SR200 for the ramp. Not sure how high the water is right there to be able to ge...

Re: Neils Scorpion WaterThunder DD

Dave how do you think this motor would perform on one of Wade's open hulls? How would it do set up as a true ride boat seating arrangement, like a single front steer double rear? Say like a 13' x7'6"?

Re: One Hell of a Ride

I think it would be really interesting to see how many people are being screwed by these a-holes. I would be willing to bet it is a lot more than just Fabian and Kevin!! So if they are screwing you over let's hear about it. I think these guys should be shut down!!

Re: dilemma.. interested in your thoughts

Do you need something that can carry more people than your current boat? I was in a similar situation a while back. I sold my ultralight hamant 13'6" boat with a 520 that was single front driver double rear. I thought I was gonna be bringing more friends for rides and stuff. So I had a 14'6" alumite...

Re: Ceramic header question for you car motor guys and build

Norman Clay has nice airboat headers. Why don't you just get yours ceramic coated? If not Norman has his headers with or without ceramic coating. I had his long tube for an LS motor. Nice stuff, nice flange on them.

How are these motors without the gearbox? Obviously they don't spin as big a prop. Are the worth having without the box? I saw a nice boat without the box for sale.

Re: Run out motors or low time motors?

I checked out barnstormers nothing there. I have a few A&P mechanics that perform annuals checking for me. I don't think Tom sells run outs. I think he overhauls them and sells them I believe. The same with Wally Moore.
