Airboats with Windshields and Cabs

Postby Wild Bill » Fri Dec 31, 2010 3:14 pm

starting to think about my next hull and it would be great to see some pictures of cold climate boats that have cabs or a windshield. I don't know if I will do a dual driver station or not as I do like the visibility of being up high however at least windshield near the front for passengers and windbreak/windshield for rear side by side driver. I recall seeing some pics however did a search and wasn't real successful. Thanks again!

Just bought this boat with a nice cab on it. Shipping it up to AK on the 8th of April.
Should be a great moose/bear hunting machine.

I can not ware enough clothes to keep me warm when running for two or three hours @ < 40*f so I went to a windshield and added heated seats and steering. I know they did make a 12v hot water heater for making coffee on the run.

If you plan on adding a windshield I recommend use a high angle if possible, a flat surface to the wind will kill performance.

For those interested in adding a front windshield, we have the triple front window design that can be bolted or welded on any existing boat. Also have a walk-thru windshield that's done the same way. It's bent out of one piece of aluminum and looks really clean.

@Shane- If you still sell the front windshield can you post a picture of one?

Thanks

A few weeks ago we were out in Potts watching Shane do a final hull test and tune on a new Revo they were delivering to Central Florida.
He was talking about some new hulls being built and appeared to be doing well.

Nice looking work. How does that work for air flow to the prop? Is there a big performance loss.
