I'd put the money into those old fords before that airboat and I hate fords!! :stirpot: bro if you want an airboat, in my opinion, that is not even a starter boat, sell it for parts and keep looking! JMO :rebel: I second that, not to be rude but real that is an aircat and a non refundable money pit.
