    Has anyone tried to make an air propulsion motor a small flat bottom? Years ago a friend of mine had one that was transom mount.
    Thanks

    Check out www.bowfishtexas.com. They built some small air motors they use for trolling while bowfishing. They say it moves them 8-12 mph on a sea ark 1872. I would expect more speed on a smaller boat.

    A few years ago we built a 12 ft plywood boat powered by a 20 hp kohler with an airplane prop. It ran about 25mph.
