For those of you that have landing crafts;
What sort of loads can you haul and what are you pushing them with? What is your deadrise, if any?
Are you guys running fresh or salt with them?
I have looked at Munson boats before but Wooldridge appears to have a version of their own in another thread, any details Glenn? What are you guys installing for power with those twin jets?
Neverland, what are you pushing yours with and who made it? Are you doing any commercial hauling with it?
Gary at Great Land welding made a 24' landing craft that my neighbor uses to haul supplies/wheeler to his cabin on the Big Su and it carries an amazing load with a 150 HP jet. His is fairly flat on the bottom with the tunnel hull and gets on step quickly, it's a darn nice utility style boat.
I have ridden with Matt Cline on his landing craft and it scoots along at 30 mph with twin 90's outboards (I believe thats the power) and it bucks the waves nicely. HPIM2491.jpg HPIM2494.jpgIt must be fairly efficient as he has been running for years in PWS.
Anybody ever use Rons riverboat service at Deshka landing? I wonder what he can carry with that big landing craft? I have yet to see it on the river with a load. I believe he's running outboard with props.
I'm curious and wanted to start a new thread since Cressaar had posted his questions about them. It got me thinking.....would like to hear more from guys that have experience with them.
