Re: Any Boating around madison fl?

We fish the marsh tributaries when red fishing or if the wind is up. the Gulf itself is a endless grass flat that is great fishing. We also scallop out of our airboat and have spent alot of vacation time in that area. The depth drops about a foot a mile in that area .We typically put in between Keat...

Re: Any Boating around madison fl?

The Gulf is to the south with many miles of shallow flats, we ride the Suwannee from time to time and its not too far down I-75 to Orange lake. I ride all these areas ,we have a place just east of you on the Suwannee river a few miles from the music park.

Re: Muffler Questions

I run the oval ones and I do wash then down and then spray wd-40 on them after they dry, after it burns off a few times it seasons them like a good skillit with a nice brownish patina! I do the headers and flex pipe as well.

A little boat like that is very tricky and probably not the best to learn on unless you stay very shallow to start. Be glad to help you any way I c...
