EA 81 Powered Boat
Posted 12 January 2005 - 11:46 AM
Stick drive, rudder steering.
The rig literally blows through mud and hydrilla due to the engine's power and low drag of the fiberglass hull.
Top speed = Approximately 40 mph in 6" of water. Less in deeper water.
A common sight in South Louisiana. There are probably a couple hundred of these boats in my area. Each one custom rigged... I have pics, but not not on a web page.

Are your pictures in digital format? If so I can host them for you. I have plenty of web space.

As for other engines used in these boats. Everyone uses either EA71's 81's or 82's. There are some who use Nissan engines for more HP, but they are not as compact. I've seen V6 engines in mud boats, but they are usually very heavy. Not ideal for running in the marsh, but very powerful for shallow duck ponds.
