Good fishin boat I made this spring, built upon my older 3'x8' airboat hull.  I can cruise around at a blistering 12mph even against a good current, but I mainly use it fishing anyways.  It's a pretty simple machine, 1/2" normal plywood construction, glued and screwed and painted with 7 coats of old exterior paint & primer.  Outboard mud motor is just a Honda GC160, simple pillow blocks bearings, 3/4" prop shaft redneck "machined" to accept the tapered mud prop.  Most expensive thing was the 17" of duplex roller chain for the coupler lol.  I wouldn't mind taking it through the numerous sloughs on the big muddy, good walleye in dem waters.  The problem is now I want a bigger boat Rolling Eyes . [Insert cliche phrase stating best days of a boat owner]

What's different between a regular boat prop and a mud prop? Im suprised they don't chip when you hit a long or something
