Is that a normal set up? Idk shit about airboats other than they suck, but surely looks like a a lot of motor.

Chuck hawk boats have a following but the also have a narrow market. Has it ever had poly? Or just slick bottom? What HP is the 540? Fuel injected or updraft carb? I have a good friend that is really good at market value for S FL. Crazy as F but a good friend!!!!

It鈥檚 a straight valve 540 so probably 260hp unless there is something done to it. Looks like it still has mags and not electronic ignition. Chuck makes a great hull but they are fast and not made to last forever. I wouldn鈥檛 pay more than 10-12K based on the engine and what the rigging is made of. It鈥檚 probably EMT or DOM.

And I don鈥檛 believe it鈥檚 a 100mph boat. I鈥檝e seen a lot of fast boats and everyone talks about how fast they are. Maybe on the bottle it might get close but 100 is a big number. I had a Jimmy White step with a 480 and 200 shot of nitrous and got close to 100. I flew it at about 85-90 on Kissimmee after a boat wake rolled through I didn鈥檛 see. You need to know what you鈥檙e doing with a step. They say it鈥檚 not if you sink an airboat but when. Well a step can kill you.

Yes. They can be ride boats but not the best option as they can only hold two people and are real easy to sink. You tear them up if you try and run dry and the sides are pretty thin. They also go as fast sideways and backwards as the do forwards.
