Looks like Justin got spooked by all the animosity on this thread.
Hope he comes back and posts up. But, my guess is that he'll wait until the bugs are worked out of his project.

Which could mean we never hear from him again........ :no:

Well I haven't gone back and read the thread again but I think all he wanted to know was IF it would work?? Work to me means will it propel the boat forward, yes I think it will. Instead all he got was it wont work good, it isn't going to hold up to the abuse etc. Again , yes it will work but to what degree I don't know and I doubt anyone else does either unless he, she, you have actually built one before. Not bashing just tired of watching him getting eaten alive by people who are obviously more knowledgeable.

I dont think he is scared, I bet he is working out the bugs as best he can. That looked like a large undertaking. Either way I hope to see the end product and he will get forward propulsion. Its a matter of how much and will the gears be usable. Either way its, bad as- concept...can't wait to see it !

I don't believe he ever asked if it would or wouldn't work. He just posted that it was a project he was working on. Some poeple just jumped down others throats because of their opinion with no actual facts proven. I did learn in the thread though that a single cylinder engine coil weighs 2 pounds or more :huh: . So thank you for that, I feel edumacated now :clapping:

Exvellent point! Keep that in that back of your mind for lightening up your boat. I can't wait to see the final product and how it performs.

It appears to function. How do the gears work? Do you start out in one and shift through or start in the gear closest to ideal rpm, say third or fourth? Does it bog down to start and then pick up as you gain momentum? Glad to see it pushing the boat, but curious of the details not shown in video

ill make a more detail video soon,it runs and it did not sink the boat so im happy but i still got do some fine tuning here and there to make it better, i have not got in no show nuff mud yet but i got it in bout 3 inches of water and sand and it did aight it felt nice and torquey in the sand,the way the gears work you shift in to 1st then have to give it gas to get the rpms up to shift to 2in and 3rd and 4th till you get to 5th gear once in 5th gear you dont have to shift any more you can come to a complete stop and then take off and it does not bog down.

Good work Mud777!!!! Nothing like a thread for those who sit around think they know more than they really do and speculate how thing won't work when they have never tried it themselves or known anyone to try such.. :clapping:

Then why not leave it in 5th? What is the point of the other gears if you can start in 5th? What I really want to know is how well the reverse works?

i have not try the reverse yet ill try it 2mrw and let you know,for the gears the motor has to be in neutral to start the engine and you have to give it gas to get the prop sping good and then shift if you try to shift straight to 5th with out giveing it gas it wants to stick,

Honest opnion here, if it runs well in 1 gear, the other gears are wasted time, HOWEVER the fact that you may have a viable reverse on a long tail could be worth the trouble of the build.
