Maybe he has a small ranch ? :)

Very nice wiring upgrade, by the way. Like having a new motor as well. :thumbleft:

Plan to drop the rigging into the hull today and start putting the front shooting platform and lights on. I'll post some up over the next few days for sure.

Plenty of wiring to do with all these lights! Keeping it neat and clean!

Prop action

I bet a 3 blade S @ 82.5" and the 2.5 ratio would make that boat look strong. :) JMO-

Does anyone know where I can find a used 3 blade long Sensenich hub to try? There should be some around with all the movement to four blade hubs.

Mark let know how much that boat weighs when they are all done hanging stuff on it. I personally think you need to stick with a 4 blade, I don't see any 3 blade working well with that size boat.

In my humble opinion I can't see this motor turning an 86" 4-blade superwide with enough pitch at the desired RPM through a 2.52 box to really shine...but I could be completely wrong. Maybe the 2.68 and 86" was the best combo for this boat, but I've seen some strong boats with 3-blade S.

I still want to see video of the green boat yall built for jeff down on texas coast. That has the 550hp LS with a 3 blade S and is apparently point and go on a 18x8. If that combo holds up, it will be big game changer for us BBC guys

How's the boat? Looks like it came together nicely.

Just out of curiosity why did you add a grass rake? Don't see those too often on bowfishing boats. A raised deck and no knee rail on a bowfishing airboat...wear your swim trunks! ;)

I see that it is removable, but the question remains why leave the rake on for bowfishing? It's removable also, correct? Put a couple of fat guys (not saying you're fat just a hypothetical) on the front of an airboat and the nose dips noticeably. Put a few fat guys on the front of a boat with an extended rake and that leverage will be magnified putting the boat at an angle, pushing a bigger wake in front of the boat while fishing, and putting the waterline closer to the gunnels in front, especially when you have a load of fish.

Again this is all hypothetical as I've never been on the front of an airboat with a grass rake while chasing fish, just what I assume will happen. My comment about the knee rail remains the same. Put a go pro on the cage for the first time you wake your buddies up with a surprise stump, and make sure you post it on here!

I'd love to hunt ducks out of this boat :) Plenty of room for decoys and dogs, and a color that won't be too noticeable when you leave it on shore.

Hate to bring bad news but those lights don't work well in murky water. They don't cut the water very well unless it's very clear. Should be bright as hell up there though.
