Re: Any airboats in Iowa ?

Yes there seems to be several airboaters in Nebraska. I am planning on going to Thunder on the Loup this summer.....We may have to make our own fun here in south central Iowa until then. I plan to run it on the Des Moines river and some other creeks/rivers in the area. Not too many swamps in this a...

Re: Considering buy a aluminum engine

Call me stupid here but if I lived in BFE or somewhat off the grid, I would want a freaking simplistic and bullet proof DIY system with easy to find universal components. This in my opinion is the exact application where a 472 / 500 Cadillac engine would more than excel. The Caddy platform likes to...

Re: Prop and box combo? Sugestions?

3 blade 80 R and a 2.38 OX or Ballistic. I will still burn the hill and save fuel while going to and from the hill. Too much gear will increase your cruse rpm and force you to put too much pitch in your prop. Chuck Im so glad someone finally realized this and said it thanks chuck hell I burn the hi...

Re: Best Place to Sell Airboat?

Eric Might be an idea to take your boat to Thunder on the Loup and let sit for a couple days at the races. Just right build for what is the most common in Nebraska. I cant even speculate the amount of people that would see your boat. Guessing 3500+- in 2 days. :) I have been surprised aint sold as ...

Stap a set of little blades on it and all viberation will be gone I promise.10 or 12 blade and rock and roll and haul ass that will bring her to life and smooth as hell,all that viberation will do is continue to wear deep into internal parts and cost you big time in later days. :violent1:
