Looks like we have a winner. That youngster sure looks to be proud of his airboat.

Default RE: First Run Scratch built

he had fun running it will take video of next run ( He will be three next week)
just wanted to see how boat handled and with the small motor it is just enough slides good and runs flat at full throttle hull is 24"x12"

the OS .20 that is on it is about worn out it has oil/fuel dripping from front of crank and blow buy from exhaust
i have a new in box fox .25 to put on it but have to get muffler screws ( i have to take to LHS to get the right size ) then break it in
will try with 2 blade prop sunday had 8x7 3 blade on today will use 8x6 2b for next run
