Re: OlfArt- Ken Johnson

Its a real shame to hear this news. Ken was a real friend of Texas Airboaters and always tried to bridge the gap between our groups!
He was a class act and gave sage advise, when Ken commented on something I read it slowly so I made sure I understood.
Prayers for the family,
Bob and the BRAB

Re: Affliction Airboat Experience

You know its sad that good people get taken advantage of by crooked airboat builders. It seems like either all builders are over priced, booked with work so they wont talk about custom builds, treat you like a ignoramus or they are crooked , take the money and dont produce. I've had buddies buy all ...

Re: Cleaning old gas tank

Drop some chain in it or nuts and bolts , fill with clean diesel. Then strap it to your tractor tire and go mow! When your done fish out the chain , drain the tank and Wah=Laa clean tank!

Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

I had the vent plugs out of the mags and only find a dot to line up? I'm guessing need to open the mags and set them up internally , then install into engine that's on TDC -25deg- thats marked on the flywheel?

JT I will call you today.

Thanks SA for the help ...we will get it eventually...LOL.
