Re: New/Old Airboat Hull

Thanks Prototype, I'll keep that in mind. Not sure what the power plant's gonna be yet. I've had boats I liked with Lycoming and Continental, so could be either. I can't even narrow it down to 4 cyl. or 6 cyl. right now lol.

Gotta get the trailer in good shape right now...or get a new one.

Re: New/Old Airboat Hull

Thanks, I didn't do it for the money, I just wanted that old hull. I ran one years ago and liked it and that one felt good with the gpu & old wore out polymer. Now I want to see how it does with a better power plant & slick bottom. If I had to guess, I'd say it was about a $1000 cheaper than...

Re: New/Old Airboat Hull

Could be an av 360, but that hull's just right for a 470, 520, or 540 too imo. I had a hull from the same mold with cad 500 in the mid 90's...only sunk it once :D

New/Old Airboat Hull

Well I finally gave up my old Diamondback to my grandson. In the process I acquired his old fiberglass gpu boat which I planned on fixing up a little and selling before moving on to something else. First thing I needed was stringers. Didn't know who to call, but remembered the Suncoast II (Mims, FL)...

I don't think photobucket makes it very easy for sharing images like this, but here's what you would put in your post that would show your image from your gallery here on SA without downloading it and uploading it as an attachment: [img]https://southernairboat.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/rtMedia/users...

Here's those pics. Not sure what the problem was. I just opened them with a graphics program and saved them as a different file.

Another Silent Prop...

Just got word that Whitebear (Scotty Thompson) passed away on April 15th. Not sure of the cause, but was told it was unexpected.

Scotty was a good guy and helped with this site for a lot of years...RIP Scotty.

Scorpion Airboats thread...

...has been removed at the original poster's request.

He posted that Scorpion was gonna fix his boat and he was gonna start a new thread.

His username has also been changed to FL Boats if anybody wants to PM him.
