Re: Caddell's Build!

I've looked into that. Just curious if countersinking the bolts wouldn't leave much of the bolt holding onto the poly????

Re: Caddell's Build!

It runs very well considering its powered by a 50hp motor. Still have a lot of dressing up on it to do. Definitely fun!

Re: Caddell's Build!

Re: Caddell's Build!

Just the seating and rigging. When I built it originally I wasn't for sure if it would even move! Lol just making it where I can un bolt rigging and work on hull if need be. It will be for sale for the right price! Possibly! Haha

Re: ROTAX 582 vs 4A084

I'm running a 503 rotax on a 12' allum hull that I built. In fact I built everything that's currently on it. I weigh 225 lbs, my boat weighs 520. That's 745 lbs! It will run 50! It has 3:1 gear box running a whirlwind prop! It's no speed demon or a rocket ship! But it's beyond fuel efficient and wil...

Re: mini build help/advice

I wish I would of made my boat 2' shorter and might just cut it down too. I run quickslick on my boat and believe it or not it runs a lot better than what I thought it would, on water or dry. I would like to get an actual GPS on it to see if it in fact actually runs as fast as the gps says it does. ...

Re: Caddell's Build!

I wanted to see if it would run better with another person. The seat arrangement is fixing to change.

Re: Polymer

What's the best poly for a mini? I've seen a ton of different kinds. And yes I've read most topics about which is best but I haven't made my decision and was curious.
