continental cracker, This is the sprayer tip you want with out a doubt. When placed in center of the bow up high it will spray back directly on your poly or bottom, the pattern it throws will totaly coat beyond the width of an 8' wide boat. I used this exact style nozzle and everyone that ever saw it spray wanted to throw what they had away. Here is a link to a company that makes them, you dont have to use them but this is the perfect sprayer nozzel for airboat application you will love it.

Those misting nozzels are not worth a crap this will get you right were you need to be.

I have never seen a spray rig. What powers it? A large pump up bug sprayer or a gas powered airless paint sprayer or something in between? The only thing I have tried is a bottle of Black Magic Tire Shine and the guy up front leaning forward. A little tricky solo though. And come to think of it, he hasn't been out since.....

That is a sweet nozzle. I was not sure if you needed 2 nozzles covering 1/2 the boat each,. or now this one where 1 does it all...... does this nozzle need to be attached to a metal water line? Or can you attach clear hose line to it... Guess I need to buy it and see the connection point on it... Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Cracker I have done many of these spray systems and this is my advise to you! You can get all the tips you want at your local lumber yard ( lowes, home depot). I like to use pressure washer tips and the reason is this. Sooner or later trash will plug your tip and it will be when you need your sprayer. With a pressure washer quick connect you can pop your tip out and spray the trash out of your line with ease. You can also change out your tips if they get clogged or broken. Another cool thing is that you can attach one of those cork screw air hoses to your spray tip connector and spray down your sides if you where stuck on dry ground, kind of like a wash down hose.

the sprayer tips we run down here are just bolts drilled out and a slit cut through the head of the bolt with a hacksaw.
the 2 bolts like this i use are also used to hold the grass rake on, so no new fab or drilling is required.
when i hit the diesal [ooops, i mean soap] it feels like the boat just takes off.


my old aircraft boat had sprayer tips with alum sharouds protecting them. it worked great but was more work to install and sumthing to hangup on stumps.


i'll try to post a pic when i get back from offshore.

as far as the spray rig goes, i gots a 12volt atvsprayer motor under the front deck and a 7 or 8 gal tank under my stand that i can use in the summer or take it out for the winter.

the one tip i will tell u is that u need to put the spray rig on a bushbutton switch or a springloaded toggle switch, cause if u don't u will leave it on and dump out all ur soap when u forget to turn it off. had that brainfart too many times!!!!

I've got some pics in my gallery of mine. One thing is make sure the nozzles are not all that much higher than the pump. The pump on my spray rig can only pull so much head once the water in the tank gets real low and the volume of spray diminishes.
