They are about the same as some other builders I have used. They use a lot of Bill Mitchell parts. I haven't had a problem with the 540 they built me but this is the first one and it only has a few hours on it but so far I'm impressed with it.

Re: All aluminum 632

I am running a 2.55 Ox drive on this one I usually use the 2.38 but this one seems to be working well on this boat. I ran a 84 inch 4 blade R series and it cruises about 3200 at around 34mph and pushes good on the ground.

Re: AIRBOAT HELP

You can get a new one built with a big block with a reduction unit and 4 blade prop built with the seating the way you want it cheaper than some of the used ones I have seen for sale. I have built and delivered a bunch of boats to Texas and have more headed that way. Just make sure whatever you get ...

Re: car motor engine builder??

Blue print won't warranty them on an airboat from what I have been told. I know there is a 383 with a 177 blower on it that Glen built sitting at American motorsports in Orlando that made 500hp I believe Glen wants 7500 if I am not mistaken. It's brand new

Hey, Chuck I have a customer wanting to run a eco tech on a 16x8 in Alaska and be able to haul 2 guys and 1000 pounds of gear also he wants an enclosed cab on the boat.

Is there a benefit to having Affliction assemble an Alumitech Airboat for you? Are there things that he can do that Alumitech can't or won't, I.e. front steering, lights, etc? Can you save any money or time? Alumitech builds a good boat, maybe Affliction has more time to visit with a customer about...
