Ruffian, I think the design criteria for this machine is to carry two hunters with decoys less than a mile upstream in a shallow rocky river, crossing some sand bars and, possible needing to go a few hundred yards on frozen soil/ice.

This is a winter vehicle, so after a Bug warm up, I suspect D will only run less than an hour in and out.

Fuel usage will not be a problem. Speed, power and draft will be. Oh yes, safety!


It is an interesting, creative build.

Well then Your more then welcome to have a ride .
" vicariously"
Haha Nope if you where closer when I got the kinks worked You would be more then welcome for a real ride.
I think your right on "run time" but you have to allow for air slippage , a lot of blow and not so much go.
The motor will have to run between 1800 rpm to engage the clutch and 3100 rpm , max on the prop.
