Build an Airboat Snow Mobile
These plans are for an enclosed cab snow mobile.
This snow mobile folds apart for easy towing. When you get it to where you want it, put the ski back on and fire up the propeller. The motor used was a 65 hp engine from a Continental airplane. Attached to the prop, the boat pushes itself along on the skis.
From the plans:
"Four winters of hard use around
International Falls, Minn., and also in
neighboring Canada have proved the Merrymaker snowmobile to be a practical, rugged vehicle ideal for cold climates. The
thrust of a propeller driven by a Continental
aircraft engine drives the vehicle over
snow and ice and, when it is necessary to
transport the snowmobile over dry highways,
it becomes a "self contained" trailer.
In about 15 minutes two men can remove
the three runners, install two wheels and
the unit hooks to a trailer hitch on a car
for quick change of locations at highway
speeds. The easy transition from snowmobile
to trailer was made possible on the
original because it is built on a modified
It is possible
to build the snowmobile from the ground
up by using the dimensions and drawings."
