Laura and I are going to try REAL HARD to make it. Still have not got our boat together, but I'm thinking that with some luck we'll have it together in a few more days, I'm going to have the mechanic shop next door to my shop tune up the motor. We'll need to trailer it out to someone for a safety check. Is anyone interested in that? Before we took the motor off, it ran pretty good. No mufflers, but long flex pipe going up & out the TOP of the cage. We were surprised at how quiet it is for not having mufflers. I'd like to run it a few times without mufflers so when we do put them on in a month or so, we'll know how effective they are (or not).
How long of a run is it? And most importantly, how "novice friendly" is it? Neither one of us has yet to pilot our own craft, but we've both been aboard airboats several times & both of us have been involved in regular boating for most of our lives. We are both intelligent, enthusiastic, and fast learners. I can hear y'all saying "yikes" right now.
That outing will probably be our second or third time at the controls of our own airboat. We're counting on advice and guidance from you veterans!
Disaster waiting to happen? You decide and bring your camera! If you think it is too advanced for us, we'll just putt around Mullett Lake Park that day and get more practice.
