    Re: new guy looking for ideas

    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...

    Re: new guy looking for ideas

    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 Corky...good to hear from you! Sorry but the last thing I want to do in minus 15 degree weather is to sit in front of a large fan:&&:. I did take the boat out to do some duck hunting in October...

    Hi LowePro and welcome!
    I started out many years ago with a 14' jon and a 440 Rockwell (now Cuyuna) direct drive unit. It ran well with one person and planed OK. I agree with Corky, you won't be...

    Sorry I haven't chimed in but I've been at the EAA Oshkosh Airshow. Looking at your videos I would say that you are definitely running stern low and if your engine is already tilted front...

    Looks good...are those special mufflers or are you planning on running straight pipes? If so, you'll probably need to add a restriction to introduce some back pressure

    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?

    You might want to keep your eye out for a double trailer for personal watercraft. I found one really cheap and it's very easy to modify for a Marty Bray hull and fits perfectly.

    Re: more engine problems

    Right now I'm set at 10 degrees (measured 3" in from the tips on the flat side). That's running the 084 with a Circle-S reducer. I'm happy with the thrust and top end rpms at that setting.
