Re: Homemade title and cost

I just did this in December and didn't have to provide anything. I live in Jacksonville but I went to the small town just to the north of me because I live about between the two and did it there (small town people are usually much more helpful). It's pretty simple for boats under 16'. Anything over ...

Re: Update on our high school airboat project

Very cool project! This is what we need to keep in our schools. We can't let our kids get left behind on the tech and academic side but this country is losing craftsman at an alarming rate. I'm 38 and can build almost anything and so can most of the guys I grew up with, but my 21 year old brother an...

Re: North Florida Airboaters ride 8/16

Are any of y'all the ones that come by my house on the trout river in Jax? It kills me when I hear you coming. Trying hard to get my boat finished so I can get back out there.

Re: why does my airboat go slow??

Appears to be a tunnel hull with ALOT of weight and not much push. What does it have for power and what diameter prop? I'm looking on an ipad mini but it looks like a DD of some sort. Can't quite make it out.

Re: The hurricane lives again

I thought the same thing. It has to be an illusion because the belt drive would be LHR not RHR and you can hear the wind in the mic when he walks behind the boat.

Re: Scotty's Airboat build update

Scotty, go to J B Nase at 2124 Edison Ave. off of Stockton St. They are a great bunch of guys with everything you need and great prices. It's kinda nice to go into a place that doesn't own a computer and keeps a hand written price sheet too! I buy all my nuts, bolts and washers from there.

Re: 496 White performance

Just to clarify I was not doubting the power. Those number are on par with similar engines I've had built and in my opinion a great engine for an airboat. I was just meaning to clear up relationship which you did better.
