Re: Ban Bear Hunts for 10 years!!

If there is a sustainable population it should be available for harvest. Is something wrong, that the consumptive users cannot manage your states resources? It is called Libtards. Libtard, non-consumptive, wildlife viewing all should take a back seat to the management of wild resources for the maxi...

Re: Welded UMHW Sheets

Super slide website says up to 100' long and up to 16' width. I would prefer to not have to lap 4x8' sheets.

Welded UMHW Sheets

I contacted Horn Plastics today to price a 12x7x3/8 piece of their Blue Iron. Jason, the rep. Whom I spoke with, informed me as of today they will no longer sell welded sheets that are intended for installation on airboats. Are their any other manufacturers selling welded sheets?

Re: flotation pod on airboat ?

Duckyager, do you have a stern view pic of that pod on boat that isn't all fowled up? What is it 12 or 18" and does the bottom sheet of your boat run continuous to the end of it?
Also like the SS O/U in the pic.

Re: Ever heard of Gutless Field Dressing

Yes, we do our deer this way for packing them out. It doesn't take very long to get the meat off, packed up, and be on your way out. I most always leave the head and antlers, unless the boat is close.

Re: Belt Drive Replacement - Gearbox

Cold weather operation. I use my boat year round......

Going between warm weather box fluid to winter fluid isn't so dandy when you consider my boat often doesn't come home from the field for 2-3 years. I go to it. A grease gun and wrenches are all I need with the belt box.

Re: Shorty Headers melting engine mounts?!

Upward thinking on mounting those headers. Do you have room to bring the pipes forward then down and out the back or are you thinking of running them high? Seems like supporting the pipes up high may be a challenge?

Re: small boat on top of airboat

I haul a 12' duck boat strapped to my windshield frame and lashed to my upper steering station. The airboat is a Leaonard hull. It travels just fine through mild alder choked streams.

We use them for transport and storage of diesel, regular gasoline, and AV gas. The only problem I have with them is the white gaskets under the bung caps swell with contact to gasoline.

Re: Family Of 5 On Airboat Missing In Everglades

Preparedness items also need to go with a train of thought. Sooner or later sh** will go south. I have to agree with a previous post that you should have a wingman where other boaters are infrequent, or nonexistent.
