Re: dilemma.. interested in your thoughts

Spend 1 full day running a boat like you are going to invest in. Run it in the erea you will use it most and if you love it at the end of the day then go for it.

Same kinda stuff the aircraft guys been saying about the ls motors for years. Dream up some original dirt.....man. Facts are facts and ours come directly from general motors.

Re: How are the Eco Techs holding up

if its makin such a high torque number at such a low rpm why do you need a gearbox much less a 2.3 to turn a 74 inch prop Wasn't that how this all started? Thunder was developing a direct drive GM 4cyl with Chuck. No. And as far as torque is concerned my ltg motor is at almost peak torque at only 1...

This thread has turned into a infomercial. Now we find out it's turbo charged and has nitrous and it lighter it has every advantage it can an your comparing it to standard boats. Well I will not be impressed until it out runs a race boat an they don't even have any power adders so if it's so much b...

Re: I'm riding Hernando next weekend 9/27/14

I gotta say this is one of the reasons that after 20+ years of airboating that I enjoy this pastime more every year. Most of the people I have met through airboating are as good as it gets. I have rode all over the state with some of these guys and this weekend will be yet another great ride. Can't ...

Re: 5.3 efi hamant

Take some pitch out of the prop until you are running about 5400 wot and you will probably be amazed at how much better it runs throughout the rpm band. I bet it will be snapier, have a faster top end, and run dry better. Jmho

The best place for everyone to put in at is at the boat ramp on lake Tsala Popka in Hernando. Just put.....East Lake Place, Hernando Fl. in navigation and it will take you directly to the boat ramp. Best place to stay is at the Quality Inn.....350 e. Norvell Bryant Hwy. Hernando fl. 352-527-0015. As...

JB550 , Hey I would probably go with your suggestion of riding Potts one day and The Eagle the next. Water is so high getting under the bridges is a nightmare with large group right now. T.C. slide was at 7'3" the other day. Article in the Citrus Chronicle this week said LEO has been notified and w...

For those traveling......I will personally be eating at Amante's for lunch. Great food, airboat parking , adult beverages....can't ask for more. Unless those riding really want to run the canals, road crossing ( turner camp rd ) and the 2 lakes to go to the eagle then we will be riding Potts only. P...
