They gave you good advice. I said all other things equal, go for the 4 blade, but you got a motor that needs to spin, less blade is better. 73" is a big diameter, but skinny blades. Test them up to 3,400 RPM or so to find the sweet spot.

Looks like a sweet ride, I'm with Kwan, send us some future vacation pics and video.

We are running to hunting at our places (small water areas with plants around), but everywhere was ice covering. And we are ran to border delta of rive Volga and Caspian sea.

I checked my previous data about gear ratios and found a mistake:

1st - 4,35 (not 5,1);
2nd - 3,14 (not 3,4).

But it is not bad. I think it is big potential for using the 1st gear.

Boat coming along nicely.

Had a teacher who was of Russian heritage his grandfather was eaten by a bear while walking along railroad tracks. I can imagine there are some very wild remote places in that vast nation.

Yes it's very big country with different natural. I live at place when many rivers and shallow water basins. Now we have situation with lower down of water level, and who have possible to crossing shallow water they will be happy for hunting or fishing.

That guys who build that boat called - "aeroglisser", had visit to me for familiarization with my airboat, they was very surprised.

It's easy, more part of our airboats have hull from special inflatable segments covered poly. Because it's using more at winter.

For example, that boat 18'x7' have a weight about 1000 lbs (without riders and equipment) and engine 120 HP. I think you can make
conclusion.

I think for future we will problem with using airboats, because they very noisy. Using my be restricted by location authority. Noise unsafe for fauna.

It's one of reason why I start search alternative for my engine.

I mean prop should be more width (for example NGQ 72) and engine have more power and torque.
