Re: Continental GO-300

Never saw a go300 only a o300. There were a few around and a nice sweet running motor. Problem was weight to horsepower made running the O 320 or other 4 cyl a better choice. The GO-300 you have would probably be a sweet running motor on a airboat and defiantly better than a one without gear reducti...

Re: Gpu cylinders

No the 0200 cylinders will not fit. They are the same size as the PE60 only aircraft so the intake is on the bottom. A lot of people are converting to 047 cylinders but it takes some more parts than just cylinders and I would want to know what shape bottom is in before i went that route. Look around...

Re: Laying wire questions

Never said I wanted to build or run a boat built that way. Only wanted to know your reason. You have a valid reason and if you had explained it the first time I wouldn't have been confused.

Re: Laying wire questions

I agree a properly built cage is a critical safety component, but I can't grasp how it would be safer to have no wire verses wire only running horizontally.

Water

I have it on good authority that there is more than enough water to go air boating at this time. So everyone better get out and ride before it's closed due to high water.

Re: Stainless or No ?

First of all if your 11 foot boat with a 180 won't run dry something is wrong, that used to be the combination everyone used to run dry. Even with full wrapped stainless it was the boat to have. That being said it will run the grass better with steel flex, especially the 2000.The down side is it has...

Re: Paint pain paint???!!

Awl grip is defiantly the best. Nason is a good paint also. Mason is a easy paint to use and it is durable. Nothing is going to stand up to running sawgrass. My theory is make it look new and use the hell out of it. If the paint wears off its a sign it isn't sitting on the trailer.

Re: Paint pain paint???!!

I like Nason automotive paint. Automotive paint suppliers have it, look up Nason dealers and you will be looking for a single stage . I think it is Ful Thane. It is a easy paint to spray with some practice.

Re: Engine stand question

My guess is the prop won't clear the stand. Most of my experiences have been when you try to modify something to work, it would have been easier to just start from scratch.

Re: Are AGM batteries suitable for airboats? If so, which ones?

Anytime you turn that switch if is momentarily off. You should only turn it while engine is off. If I had two batteries I would run one going and the other returning.
