New to me airboat, traded a snowmachine for it. It has some issues but main thing it is runs and complete, apparently it slowly leaks but I was told with the bilge pump its no issue. Has a Lycoming o-320 160hp with dual mags, 5 blade warp drive prop and converted to chevy alt and starter. Its a little banged up but does not look to bad to me, then again this is my first airboat. Does not have anything on the bottom, what does everyone run here in AK? I have seen a few with poly and some that have the paint on like gator slick and from what I can see they run the same. I am looking for someone who welds aluminum to patch up the bottom any one have suggestions? Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions that would be awesome, also I have never run one of these if some one is going out soon and does not mind a newbie tagging along let me know. Thanks!
