Weedeater Boat Motor




What do you think about this video?

Simon De Asian: My brother bought a new 49 cc 4 stroke engine and he wants to do this 

loadthebowl: That thing is fast as heck wow

Amiga3000: (3:47) I don't think you Dog wanted to be seen riding in that boat..

Wade Smith: That prop needs a different pitch

calvin puffer: R.c boat props

joey christy: As far as the sound goes,i built one using an old Craftsman trimmer one time,I modified the exaust,I fitted a piece of steel pipe to the muffler an ran it down so it was like a boat exaust,in the water.And a steel plate just above the prop goes a very long ways,it keeps the thrust from shooting upwards giving you more power.Mine was VERY effective until the plastic prop flew into pieces from to many rpms,find a good aluminum prop you can make work.

hangemhighification: Damn nice job sir!! Love the dog going with you! Nothing like a K9 Companion to enjoy the outdoors. Love it!!! Good job on engineering.

chapiit08: Reminds me of the peke-peke boats of Amazon river in Peru.

Big Shed Idea's: I tried this years ago didnt work too much pitch on prob and size stalled engine You need a plate above prob and a pipe from exhaust going under water to drop noise level 

rhadiem: Those little gas motors are one of my least favorite sounds possible, but it works sure enough :)

RIPSAWONE: That is just too cool. And if I tell the VA Marine Officer I'm cutting weeds, I won't have to have a VA boat number.

minibiker99: does this have a clutch still in and does it still work?

James Montgomery: Wow. A day dream of mine and you did it.

Harry Paul Garcia: winner! Great job. a little loud, but who cares. that is awesome

akaBeastMode101: im going to make one of these but im going to buy 2 cheap weedeaters and buy 2 props about the size of a cd

PassingGradeBooks: Your dog is awsome. :)

SIKE5323: dude I can paddle faster than that

WC9456: good luck fishing with that noise.. haha

euripideesshreds: This is brilliant in how you combine various aspects of other machines to come up with this. Thanks for the inspiration man...

shinyfuzzy: some of your power is being long by flinging it up u need to make a plate above the propeller

Begbucks: @banjo258

Alistair B: love the dog! great build, exactly what i want to make this summer. if only i had a nedneck uncle who lived on a lake so i wouldnt look like a idiot at a beach

polerigger: I here that a lot of weedeater spin clock wise and trolling motors spin counter clock wise any suggestions ???

skeilak: Good work on the outboard. Your labbie seemed impressed, too. : )

JGBLADES: Purrs like a kitten lol.

captainpegs07: Awesome project but I'd hate to listen to that all day :)

CrashOverdrive4: @vwdriver8542 Some propellers will allow you to go faster. Im about to replace the propeller on my minn kota bc I saw a review about the standard issued ones just dont have as much thrust.

king14rk: hows the gear head worknig.. any problems? thx

SirAndrewll: Where is that body of water you where testing the boat?

Bob Linton: How many pound thrust you think it is. Or would you say its a 1/4 horse power? Trying to get a better feel for what it can do, Thanks for shareing.

Thetruthishere11: nice. try lawnmower engine next time.

HogWilder.Net: YeeeeHaaawwwww!!! Great Idea, Great Execution, Great Video. Great Dog!!

Peter Antognoni: On comments from brianhoopajoo "Does anyone else notice that the wind blows exactly as the motor is plunged into the lake?"and "Ever hear of the butterfly effect? He disturbed the space-time contiunum."Leave it to a astrophysics major to overlook the obvious fact that another landscaping mechanic in the neighborhood must have simply made a canoe jet drive out of a backpack yard blower and fired it up at the same time on his rig just outside the frame! BTW, the pooch would rather you paddle.

vwdriver8542: Not at all. Tiny little lake in Greenup county, KY named Greenbo. Please hold the redneck jokes. The lake is restricted to "idle speed" or no wake because it gets crowded and is not very large. This engine works perfectly for this lake.

Justin Crediblename: Dammit. I was really hoping to see a 40 horsepower weed whacker.

dills2403: @vwdriver8542 go straight for the gsxr suzuki 1000 motor make a hydroplane.....

scooter0017: Just wondering if you used a clutch or clutchless line trimmer?

Conor Craig: You may have made an extremely loud version of minnkota's endura 30. Slowest lol

Kawasaski65: @bigD96000 use the 6.5 horse motor man. if you can use that it would be way better. using a 50cc two stroke to push yea isnt a great idea. you could blow a piston after idling for too long. plus the lawn mower motor has the capability to go faster as well and well who doesnt like that. This is just coming from a 13 year old but im pretty experienced. Good luck and im jealous! i think ill make my own boat cuz my dad wont get me one. have fun man!

leapinglanmann: @clargdorp You Tree huggers can put it where the sun don;t shine. Where ya going to find a pristeen river where you live honky.

thegameofhearts: wat lake is that?

zack sells: Ummmm why did I never think of that..This is sweet.

huntfishutah: @WC9456 you have to wake up the fish

kakabukkake0: your dog is very cool.

Darkreaperxl: Question will this work on a 12ft. jon boat that has a semi-v hull??? i dont want to pay $1,000 for a 2.5 - 5 HP engine for it considering that it is just gonna be to play around in the water :P

DT3 DT3: @vwdriver8542 : maybe you should use bigger propeller. I'm pretty sure the engine can handle cause your's look kinda small, just make sure it's not too big for that engine. I'll build one when I got time probably few more months. I'll buy the one with 4cycle at Sears. Is yours 2 or 4 cycle?

mattt6511: When i watch a video like this all the things i once thought were not possible now seem to be.. i could of used this persons help with soo many things... lol

stclairstclair: Good dog, my dog and a weedeater.....not so good!

Notto380: Yeah his prop is to small
