Busy work for some offshore drilling rig due to oil price recovery.
The boat is finished and we have a trial in the river nearby. The engine can be start by electric starter or recoil. See the video, and enjoy it.
I have a bollard pull( static force) test, at maximum speed 3600rpm, it is 40kgf=390N=88lbf. For a small 10hp diesel engine, it's very succesful. Totally cost 6000USD. some friends is interesting, maybe produce another 2 or 3, some small modification on the following ones.
And next step is to product airboat 14' long with 100~200hp engine. I don't know why the video is unclear, I am using corel video studio, maybe my laptop's 4G memory is not enough. I will buy new memory this week.
