Re: Alaskan hunting Mini

Thin layer of water under the hull will freeze you solid when you stop. Park it on some branches or 2x4. My big boat moves at idle, and it weighs 4000lbs. +. Look forward to the day when you can run the slough a few times and get a feel for the boat in its intended application. Sliding on snow isa b...

Re: Alaskan hunting Mini

Put your power plant in and see if it pushes across snow. So much time and energy into this, would be nice to run it before you continue to trick it out. You need !ow end push to run those tight lil slough, snap to keep you out of the brush, and tight turns all at slow speed. I don't know enough abo...

Re: Alaskan hunting Mini

Ok, big lake might be open. That could be handy if the docks were still in too.

We can PM on the side for my concers/thoughts. I am all in for trying new things. I'm down this direction if I can help when you decide to run her.

Re: Alaskan hunting Mini

My thoughts....
I want you to succeed but I more concerned with about a dozen things that can hurt you in your design and set-up.
The lakes are frozen here as well, Palmer.
Where are you planning to test this next week?

Clear coating bare aluminum, should I?

Shark hide for sure. Clear coat ocean boats with it. Excellent stuff.

Re: Alaskan hunting Mini

I don't think your hull is deep enough of wide enough. With it being so light the hull cannot be very thick.
Correct me if I'm wrong, just looking at your pics.
Where do you plan to run this boat? Location in the state matters.
What bottom protection are you using?

Re: 12x6 1/4 in poly

Here in Ak, we get 100' rolls of 1/4" and 3 /8" rolled and shipped all the time.
Then we cut it up, roll it up as smaller chunks and send it out to customers.
No problem!

Re: Ice boat stuck

Why not build a simple wedge and pull the ft end up on it and get 80% of the hull off the ice? How deep is the snow? How big of a foot print on your wedge to keep it afloat? Will the wedge you brought freeze to the ground? How heavy is this wedge you want to carry? Etc.... Toss out a couple 2x4's a...

If you need dry forced air heat, check out my Planar heater.
