Default Expresscraft is Back

We are back making hulls, Had a stroke last year and just needed to get the right help, Anyways we do make 2 Airboat hulls, This is the big chainsaw motor hull. 42" x 24", it is a deck over boat with rails installed, ready for your power cage, Some use wood, But for a nice scale build these are great to use 1/8" ss wire, The hulls are 200.00 and the seats are 25.00. A dart board makes a great jig to tack your outer circle of cage with, These boats run great in the snow as well. Most people do not know but Air boats were first made in Canada to rescue people who fell through the ice. Now Cocoa Fla were we are is the Air boat capital of the world, Our e-mail is Info@expresscraft.com ,These boats are not on our web site so I am showing you what we have. The other one is best powered with a Saito .80 four stroke., no pictures of that one yet.

Found some pictures of our 2 air boats,The big one shows what the Chain saw motor version can look like. We do not make the cages or Rudders yet, And never will in house as we are a fiberglass shop and not a wielding Machine shop. But the great running hull is always a foundation. That is useful to people who do not want to guess on a great running hull. The smaller boat shown is full size at 35"long by 16" wide.The deck over was done by the customer, we only make the bare hull for 70.00. They are great powered with a .80 four stroke or a .60 2 stroke. I do not know what the right power would be for electric. Many cut this hull down to make her look more scale and remove the rounded front with a straight flat front. We made it taller all the way around for better use in open waters.This hull has won many competitions held at the Coacoa civic center. Cocoa is the Air boat capital of the world. Having a hobby shop here. it was easy to get real knowledgeable help on these boats. In both cases. the customer has to put together the power package and rudder assembly. But hey that is modeling and you get a great foundation.
