Airboat Construction

 


Here are some pictures of the "Airboat" project from start to finish. Click on the thumbnails to see the whole picture... I'll add more as I go.

Here is the knee board I got. It is brand new, never used. There are strakes on the bottom and reinforced bolts on each side where the arrows are at. The boogie board, above, weighs 4 1/5 lbs with 3 layers of fiberglass on the bottom. The knee board weighs 8 1/2 lbs. after removing as much of the foam as possible, so I believe It'll never get close to the weight of the boogie board. I'll probably put it up on a shelf for now. Maybe I'll make an exotic boat out of it in the future. If you have any comments or ideas please contact me.
