Re: Free Alumitech

Appreciate the info. What drive would you recommend with that 496? That's actually better pricing than I would have expected

Re: Free Alumitech

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...

Free Alumitech

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...

Re: Hi-Performance oil cooler for a 540

Does anyone know of oil cooler that has drain plug? I have 0540 and I'm starting rebuild next month and want to mount new cooler down below but want a way to drain it every time I change oil. I just don't like the thought of placing it up above the engine. My thought is when the engine is not runnin...

Re: Camo Wraps for Airboat - Vinyl Graphics Kit

Never used CamoClad, although wish I did. I bought the crap wrap from Cabela's and it did not last one duck season. It tore, ripped and peeled chunks from going through light brush. Got pissed tore it all off and spray painted the entire boat, rudders, rigging, EVERYTHING.

Re: Duck calls

In general I would agree with JC, but since I moved here from Illinois (where calling is very effective if your descent) I've found calling works as good on mottled ducks as it does on early season migrator's, not so much for teal and believe it not there are times when it works wonders on blue bill...

Re: Duck calls

Haydel's. They're out of Louisiana. Use the DR 85 for big ducks (mallards/mottled ducks) and they make a good high pitched teal call too.

0540 Question

Thinking about buying vertical mount (helicopter) V Model 0540. Does anyone have any experience with or know of any differences in model (e.g., motor mounts, oil fill, etc)?

Re: looking to buy first airboat...is this a good deal...

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...
