Re: TxWPP Airboat Pic on Facebook

Well this airboat that all the fuss is about he runs all across he!! and a half acres all the time. After getting several complaints his actions did slow but the hornets nest take a while to regroup back to the calm stage. With all this being said we cant let one bad apple spoil the whole bunch. The...

Re: TxWPP Airboat Pic on Facebook

This guy does burn the flats all the time but he is not doing it intentionally in my oppinion. He is no different that the parasail boat that runs up and down the intercoastal all day in Port Aransas. His actions are providing income for his eco tour business. But with that being said he still needs...

Re: Wade, Paddle Pole... Meeting Jan. 8th and 9th

Voted, And yes I will be there in Jan. I dont know too many people on this forum but I know a lot of the poling commanders that pole these shorelines and gripe about airboats. These people have 30,000 graphite boats and want all the flats to there selves. These people have no more curtesy on the fla...

I have an airboat and plenty of decoys but a lot of the time I have no one to go with me because of our co...

Re: motor not gettin over 2600 rpms

I agree with watersports.......your dumping way too much fuel into your engine but........that still does not explain why you cant turn the propeller over 2600. I ran a dd 350 stock engine with a 72LXL38 Stick and it would spin 2800 + no problems. If you want to solve your problem for sure take that...

383 Propeller for DD

Well I spent the extra time and money went from the old spun 350 and turned it into a new 383.New rotating assembly new cam....the works. Im currently running a 72 LXL 38 Stick and it is too much motor for this propeller. I spin this propeller up really quickly and have to really watch the tach. I a...

Re: Direct Drive ???

In my situation its like having 6,000 in the back of the boat on a 500.00 home made aluminum Hull. just does not make much sense. But put a little more HP in your engine and it satisfies you. But you are definatly limmitting the potentential of your engine as well as consistently pushing agains the ...

Re: prop advice

I run a 16' alum. with a 350 DD 72 LXL 38 stick. It pushed fine with few modifications to the engine. also depends on how much weight your going to be haulin. Will not over rev and wont run dry either.

Re: Got a ticket on the water, need some feedback

Take em to court, its a misdemeanor so you wont have to pay a court fee. its just like a speeding ticket. And how did he know you were going above or below 25 mph? Ive never seen a radar on an airboat. Fight them all the way. Maybey his eyes are calibrated with radar? :lol:

Re: cams

What size boat are you trying to push? I run a 16' aluminum hull with a DD 350 72LXL38 and it runs good. I wont push it to run dry but anywhere with a little water I can run. The cam will make a big difference but if your lookin to stay with a DD setup might consider Upgrading the 350 to a 383. More...

Re: Spun Main Bearings on 350

Yes, I let an ole timer talk me into a wood prop. Another lesson learned. but, i did track the propeller initially and it was within 1/16". I appriciate your input fellas.

Spun Main Bearings on 350

Just finshed building my first Airboat, DD gm 350 4-bolt. Ran fine all day long, 30 seconds from the dock the boat lost power. I idled the boat into the dock when I turned the engine off and then back on again. Cluclunk cluclunk sounded horrible. Tore the engine down today and found three bearing th...
