Good to hear it's doing Well. So very sad for those of us that knew Chuck well that he didn't get to see all of the fruition of his hard work developing the technology to run these motors. Many on this site, years ago, were quite cruel and derogatory to him of his ideas, his experience and knowledge. His association with Dick and Bobby Hoffman was invaluable.RIP Chuck Rackley

Chuck always would make time for someone’s with questions or new power concepts. Went past his old shop recently and thought about his passing. So many of the real pioneers in development of our sport have passed.

Glad to hear your rig is going strong

So many of the real pioneers in development of our sport have passed.

Surfing, kayaking, canoeing, running etc., those are sports. Airboating is not a sport, I took it up to give up sports. Pretty sure I mentioned this before :violent1:


yes just remember bowling is considered a sport. and its a lot more physical work getting a boat off the bottom of a canal.
