    Re: aerokirk's build

    Hi Bart,
    I'm planning to use a century drive 2:1 at this point but still researching. I was following the threads on upgrading the 084 to EFI but my fear was the ever-present limiting factor of...

    Re: aerokirk's build

    Thanks bgmcl60,
    My boat has been a real hoot to run and we've had a lot of fun with it but just need a bit more push as we normally run in deep water up here. Dak10's boat is a real screamer and...

    Re: aerokirk's build

    Hi Corky,
    It's been a while since I've posted on this site. I am still running my mini quite frequently in the summer months. I have over 500 hours on it now and have had no issues with the engine...

    Unfortunately, I think not since that engine canít develop full horsepower at the lower rpms that propellers are most efficient. You may find a used reducer to fit that engine since there should be...

    3Cells,
    I just noticed your post and picture of your Rockwell powered boat. It looks to me like you have a Banks-Maxwell 42" prop. I had the same setup mounted on my jon boat for many years. ...

    Re: Holley "Bugspray" carb for the 084

    I'm certainly in agreement with you on the desire (but not necessarily the need) for a tig machine. I could have used one when I welded up the stainless superstructure and cage on my boat. I did it...

    Hi LowePro and welcome!

    Re: Modifying a boat trailer for an airboat

    Corky,
    In my opinion less is more on your trailer. Loose the brakes, you won't need them. I used 2"x6" carpeted rails and the boat cradles nicely and slides easily with the slick bottom. As far...

    Re: Anyone know who manufactured this trailer?
