Airboat dimensions

Post by ColAirboat » Tue Jun 04, 2013 12:17 pm

Hello from Colombia.

On this case I'm writing you for a question about the boat dimensions.

What can you suggest me if I will use an engine with 125,37 HP to 2900 RPM?

this link has the motor's technical guide:

Thanks for your time, have a nice day.

try using the search button on the top right of the page and do a search for some of Chuck's ecotech mini threads should be comparable for your needs, you also probably are going to need to think about a reduction unit either gear drive or belt reduction

there is no such thing as a dumb question accept one that wasn't asked, like sseater said OP he was asking about hull's if he search for those ecotechs of chuck's he should have a good compassion both in motor and hull . There is a wide range of props now available and they pro-from best at different rpm but in general yes around 2900 give or take a few hundred rpms . He is also asking about a car motor which tend to make there full Hp and torque at higher rpms
