What Glass hull to go with????

Post by Trickynicky540 » Tue Oct 29, 2013 8:26 am

Looking to buy a glass hull around 13x7 for my Gpu 520 conv w/ a whirlwind 72". Has a 2004 cottonmouth thats heavy as hell with 3/8 poly. Hull seems to be not going up and over roadways like the one we pass getting over to hotdog. I looking for a lighter hull but can run the ground good, water, watever. So with that said I spoke with jimmy white about going with his MarshMaster 13x7. What do you think? And yes I'll be putting 5/16 or 3/8 new poly back on it??????

Call Jason or Nate at airboats by JT fab 863-285-1295. They are great people to deal with and have a really nice 13' boat.

For glass I like Jimmy White. Also like a Marty Bray River Master, Paul Jackson builds a nice hull as well. Sure like the pics that have been post on the ricochet hull by Mr. hooker I believe.
