It's because you left the garage door open, isn't it?

Screw the airboat - build him a Thai longtail boat.

^Well that was interesting. I liked the turbo whine, but was that a diesel motor? The description says the motor was 1 liter and it seems the a boat that light with a flat bottom should go faster than 62 mph.

Very small boat, very stable boat. Remember water has an ADHESIVE factor, so while a John boat will be stable, it won’t be fast due to the adhesion across the bottom surface.

Canoe with outriggers?

It's a Cuyuna 2 cylinder 2 stroke engine originally used in snowmobiles. Detuned for reliability and common in ultralights back in the day. Around 30 hp.

Haven't gotten it running yet. Carb is messing with me. Will start and run on ether but won't run on it's own. Been sidetracked by other projects, need to get that gangly sumbitch out of my garage.

Maybe Tuesday.

It's ALIVE! MuWAAAAAAhahahahaha.

Took three trips through the carburetor to get all the 20 year old goopy remains of premixed fuel out of it.

First, and most importantly, good luck on the engine resurrection project! Smile

Secondly.....

What is the motor?...
Around 30 hp.

For reasons due to either

1) my poor Google-fu, or
2) fundamental physics

this was the result for a Google search for the phrase "30 horsepower airboats"
quote:
About 896,000 results (0.66 seconds)
No results found for "30 horsepower airboats".

I also wish your friend luck, but I think he may find his use for this engine to be something more prosaic than an airboat.

Chicken dryer, I like that! Though, my friend has maybe a dozen chickens/roosters and, contrary to the saying 'mad as a wet hen' his avians seem to like being out in the rain.
