I could go direct drive or box depending on the benefits. I've only ran my 0540 so I'm not familiar with output/benefit of box. That being said I have no qualms with putting reasonable amount of money into getting this "battleship" moving, just want to do it smart. I would like to get it moving unde...
Yup no BS, my work gave me an older model 19x8 Alumitech because the motor mount broke loose and cracked both the rear corner gussets dropping the cage about four inches. Rather than fixing it they pulled the motor scrapped it and pushed it up on the bank and left it for over a year until I asked th...

First off I'd say be very careful. We have a few things in common; I'm still running my first airboat (13ft Alumitech, w/0540) and I'm loving it. I'm also a duck hunter and originally from Illinois. As a matter of fact still own a farm 20 minutes from Quincy where this boat is listed. I moved down t...
