My Wifes new Hamant ride boat!

Postby Waterthunder » Thu Jul 15, 2010 9:50 am

It has been way to long since I had a ride boat! Wade at Hamant airboats just started my new hull. I looked at a ton of boats and I just appreciate some of the new things Wade has been doing like his new stringers and bow cap not to mention their new bottom. It's a 14.5 long with walk arounds and will seat 5 with stainless rigging I wish I never sold my old Hamant but I'm sure my new one will even run better if that's possible! If I get a chance I will post some pic's! This will be my first boat that will seat more then 3 people!

It's gonna be Purple again I just couldn't find a color I liked better. It will be one of our EFI motors! I'm gonna run an R blade and try a few different ratios with the new motor combo! It will be the same color as this but the rigging will be stainless and the hull will be bigger with three seats!

Dave, you every run the Alumitech? What is the biggest difference in it and the Hamant? Look close, but never get to see the Hamant over here?

As for production aluminum hulls I like the Hamant, Diamondback and Alumatec all three run great you will be very happy with an Alumatec I just like some of the minor detail stuff Hamant does and I love how they are rockets in the water!

:laughing3: :laughing3: :laughing3: :laughing3: :laughing3: :laughing3: :laughing3: :laughing3: .. Can you cook and clean???????????

Dave, I could not agree with you more. I have owned several of Hamants hulls.. and the new one with the rolled stringers, the rear cut swale, extra braces in the rear, and the "TRUE" dry box, not to mention he braces up the bow so it does not dent in when you jump on it... I could not be happier !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He does AWSOME work...................... Man, can't wait to see your new ride... Congratz on getting another boat..

Here is a Tubed back half Duster I owned around 15 years ago she is Plumb Crazy Purple. I built a Nasty W2 headed small block Mopar nitrous motor for it!
