Default OS Max 60FP

would this be a suitable engine for a 31" deep V hull? I have an old plane lying around and I was thinking I might be able to use this engine in the hull I have.

Thanks for all opinions.

I would think even though this motor is a low rpm, engine, it would need too large a prop to be effective on such a small hull. The torque and large prop may too much for a 31 inch boat. Were you going to use a cool clamp on it??

Curt I don't even have the slightest idea what a cool clamp is. This boat was (is) an electric, with dual motors, 1:1.95 transmission, wire drive and custom rudder/strut. It runs nicely on 12-16 cells.

I have this OS engine and all the related hardware for the plane which I don't use, so if there was a consensus that this would be a suitable boat motor I thought I'd look into what changes were needed.
Thanks for responding.

cmho2,
Have you considered an airboat?Use your plane stuff and have a ball doing it!Check out the airboat forum and dadadyro's new airboat site. Lots of help over there, everything from .049's to gassers, electric too. See haljmac run over logs and climb hills with his new 4' gasser (U.S.41 powered). Must see that vid!! Best to ya!

I don't see why you can't put a marine engine on a air boat, but I would think that you would need to run a water line to the engine head to help keep it cooled down. contact Blew by you boats for more advise. Here is there email [email protected]
Good luck and let me know how it goes?

i actually have an os .21 rg-m.. although my priority now is building my first rc boat for now (a scale runabout), it just came to my mind. maybe i could try it someday.
bout your post, i think there's cooling clamp available, or may you can wrap the head with a brass or aluminum tube. or if your boat is open, not much of a problem if air pass trough freely.
