Re: for all the south fl. boyz and/or deck over guys

Im with Charles, most likely homebuilt. The transom looks like a copy from a Sage or a copy of the transom that Richard Kirk and Dickie Medlin built out of Custom Tank Service in Oakland Park. The front end, well Im not sure.

SENSENICH CARBON FIBER RUDDER

Just read in the Dec/Jan 2012 Marsh Rider that SENSENICH had a carbon fiber rudder on display at the FAA Airboat Show, did anyone get the dimentions or a picture ? Any idea if it is going into production or is it special order ? Sound like a great idea !

Re: Fully functional airboat/buggies to enter show to compet

By his own admission at least one of these boats does not run. So the comments made in the quotes are not true.

Guess I would have lost $$$$$ on that bet. :shock:

Re: Fully functional airboat/buggies to enter show to compet

I voted no, dont care if it runs or not. I have seen Glen in Area 3 with all of the boats he has built. Before the Broward show last year, the week before the show he was hauling lumber to a friend of his camp on one of his show boats and it won a trophy the next week. He rides them, races them and ...

Re: GatorGlide Origin

I believe that Gatorglide originated in the offshore powerboat industry. They were looking for a product that would allow the go-fast boats to slip thru the water with less friction and go even faster. I think then the sailboaters got wind of the product and it worked great for them also. The rest i...

Re: anyone have Gatorback GXP or blue iron in stock?

Save over 30 lbs, never worn a sheet of 1/4 out. easier to bend around the sides of the Palm Beach Hull. I forget if your boat has poly up the sides 12-14 in but if it does the 5/16 will be very very difficult to make the bend aft of the stainless ridge cap. It is possible but very difficult and the...

Re: anyone have Gatorback GXP or blue iron in stock?

I put the 5/16 on the first hull and bought 1/4 for the next but never used it. Sold the boat without polymere. I paid $484.50+$33.92 tax =$518.42 then $100 shipping and $85 to put on pallet. This was almost 2 years ago.

Re: anyone have Gatorback GXP or blue iron in stock?

I have a sheet of GXP 80x160x1/4 that I paid $703.42 for delivered to my house. If you are interested let me know. I bought it for a boat but never put it on. I spoke to Phil at TSC a few weeks back and he told me that the GXP when they get it will have at least a 25% increase in price. So I guess a...

Re: Boy this rabbit hole is really deep!

On the top of the runner there should be a indentation every 4 inches where the t-bar was bent to make the curve of the front of the boat. Put a bucking bar on one side and the rivet gun on the other and dolly the indentation out and the t-bar will straighten out and conform to the curve you want. R...

Re: To poly or not to poly?

Im with bruceharwell, in Area 3 you do not need poly. Save the weight put some Gatorglide G2 on the bottom and enjoy !!! Im building a new glades deckover and it will not have poly. If you are gonna run north of Area 2 put poly on it.
