Re: Bought new Oakie Gator - problems - Your input please

Sorry if I sound too blunt..But I would play around and learn how to control it since it controls just like a full size airboat..Then sell it and buy a real full size airboat... maybe a 12-13'x7 fiberglass hull with either a car or aircraft motor...jmho

Re: New Tv show on National Geographic Wild called " SWAMP MEN "

Wow that sucks what a wrong move on the gator wrestlers part...He should've known that gators can spin around on a dime. I'm no expert and I knew that. You can clearly see him trying to divert the gators attention but the gator ended up getting the better of him :shock:

Question about prop sounds...

I was outside the other day and heard a cessna flying over head and thought to myself...Why do airplanes with props sound different in the air than airboats do on water with a/c motors ? I always wondered this...Is it because of thinner air in higher altitudes or prop designs ?...Would any of you kn...

Re: which engine with this boat and prop

yea definately think about getting rid of that chain drive setup...Go with a direct drive setup if not you'll risk breaking the chain sooner or later and have it go thru the prop or the boat itself...Take all that off and have a machine shop make a prop adapter that will bolt to the prop and then to...

Re: which engine with this boat and prop

Yea I don't see why not...You would more thank likely have to go to a machine shop and see if they can make you a prop adapter to fit on the back of the motor then for the prop to mount to it...Do you know how big the prop is? and how much horse power rating it has and or how many rpm's it can spin?...
