Re: Quick Slick

You can roll it on. Just make sure you prep it correctly, rough it up good and wipe it down good with acetone before applying. I will say this, when you spray it you get a lot more on the boat for your money. When hand rolling a lot more goes to waste, between whats left in the bucket and stuck on t...

Re: gardner's marsh ridable?

One day I would love to catch one of these azzholes that keeps tearing up shiz on the chain and give him the beating they deserve. Blows my mind all the trash we bring in every trip out to the chain. These are airboat access only spots. Airboaters should be ashamed of these lowlifes out there that c...

Re: Chevy horsepower

I believe holden(spelling?) used LS series engines in some of their cars could be a good starting point for an engine to build upon. I don't know how it all works over there but here in the states you can get them from salvage yards. Then have it built up. That size boat you're going to want as much...

Re: Water walker prop on a 2.12 rotator box!!

BigJakesrq, thank you. Do you think I can adjust the pitch on the prop to get more push or should I leave it at its existing setting. I only ask because my fuel consumption is a bit fast (1.5 hrs of run time for 10gal of fuel). I don't get much travel on it. Depends on how much pitch is already in ...

Re: Water walker prop on a 2.12 rotator box!!

I think you are missing something. Your engine RPM is not equal to prop RPM unless it's a direct drive. If you engine is turning 6200 rpms through a 2.12 reduction your prop RPM is 2,924rpm or 6,200 / 2.12 = 2,924 for instillation and adjustment directions you can download .pdf file on water walkers...
