Re: Hog Hunters using Dogo Argentino Dogs.

BIG, powerful and fairly long winded, especially for a breed of that size. They make an excellent catch and/or finishing dog.

Re: Outboard engine on a airboat hull

I rigged a 11 x 6' 8" Gore with a 25 tiller years ago.

She ran up on plane in about 15' and only needed about 1' of water mabey 30 mph top end.

Sounds like a blistered and shot head gasket. Get you a good set, not the cheap crap. If you have repeatedly overheated then the chances are high that's your problem. If you have no water in the oil, pop your filler cap off the cooling system and let it warm up, if it bubbles like a spring you got a...
