I guess next time my lab eats my neihbors cat I'll just flash my dog insurance card and say don't worry we're covered . :...

Anybody know of a good public hunting area for ducks and geese in the Freeport / matagorda area. Just bought my first airboat and wanting to put it to the test. I'm willing to let someone tag along free of charge just to show me a few spots. :dontknow:

Houston Poly

I recieved some info on where to get poly in the Dallas area and will use that connect if there is no other option . I live about an hr south of Houston in Angleton and would much rather drive there than to DFW. Does anyone know of where i can go to get it in my area.

Re: Newbie boat pic

I understand the weight issue , it seems to me if your planning on running dry or above shallow reefs that poly would be detrimental to the life of your floor . How much would enough poly to line this boat weigh / cost ?
