Dyna Marine's entry into Texas Duty Bowfishing airboats

I am having Dyna Marine build me a new bowfishing airboat designed to better handle the back water stumps and river rocks and big deep water that we oftentimes encounter in Texas........ I am very impressed so far... 18x8 Evo with 1/2" Blue Iron UHMW on bottom, 9 of the stainless T Bars, two midship braces, two jacks, 50 and 30 gallon gas tank, shooting platform on top of engine part of cage and on top of fan part of cage, removable elevated front shooting platform, 18" grass rake, camo paint job, front steer............ It has been in the paint shop pergutory for several weeks but other than that it is ready to assemble, wire, test and bring back to Texas.... Pics are in my photo gallery, I am trying to figure out how to embed them...

I have previously made every mistake one can make in my first airboat, sunk it once, burned up two engines, bought things that just didn't work, bought things that I didn't need, you name it....I really think that Shane is taking care of me on this build and I will have something I can enjoy and be proud of...

My power plant is a BBC Dart 565, fuel injected, NOS, Century 4 2.52, 4 blade 86" Sensenich superwide S blades...

Mcm4, I realize what I'm about to say is gonna sound like your grandpa talkin' to ya, but BBC's need a little break-in time. Don't lean on it too hard for a few hours and it'll last you a long time. Over the years I've seen a lot of blocks grenaded just because somebody didn't want to take the time to let everything seat in before they started hammering on it. That boat is a beauty, man. Haven't been bow fishing for years, but used to love it.

Olf his motor is already broke in. We took it off his existing boat and are putting it on his new one. I'm anxious to see the difference in performance going from old boat to new boat. We shall see very soon!

Boy I'm glad to hear a builder listening to Texas Air boaters about what it takes to run a boat in our water! Outstanding DM.
Most builders tell you we are crazy for wanting more T bar / braces, 1/2 poly and 2 midship braces! Heck I have 13 Tee bars and 1/2 poly and have snapped a midship brace and a Tee bar on rocks...great build and thanks for listening to TEXAS customer input.

Shane with Dyna Marine thought that my wiring should be replaced, I told him that I carried a fire extinguisher and knew how to trace wires that came loose but he wanted to redo them any way....

Nice :)

I really like the chine also. Imagining a taper on the chine, I bet that hull will handle soooooo good.

Maybe he has a small ranch ? :)

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