I live in East Texas near Tyler. I travel all over for my Job. I found myself in South Louisiana and met a bunch of people who had Airboats. After 1 ride I was sold on the Idea. SO, I just purchased a 16' x 8' Mark's Airboat witha 502/450hp. 2-1 reduction. Spray System, 2 up 3 down seating with a grass rake. Where is a good place to go play in Texas ? I am VERY Familar with the Coast. Are there any good rivers to ride in Either East or North Texas ? Are there any Rivers that or Lakes that I need to be aware of that do not allow Airboats ?
