I don't fly a flag on my Gheenoe all the time, only after a hurricane when I can go on the airboat trails. I absolutely love getting out to the cypress swamp, and it's almost worth going through a hurricane for the chance to get out there. I do acknowledge that airboats have the right-of-way on airb...

Studly indeed, Whitebear! Rrrrrouwr! I had to pull out this old one of me on Spade Island, early 1980's. I couldn't figure out what looked so strange about this photo, but it seems like my middle is all pinched in....oh, I know - I had a waistline! http://www.realfloridagifts.com/images/peb1.jpg

Thanks from the Sweetwater Canal

For any of you who launch at the Airboaters Association in Melbourne (or next to it) and go down the Sweetwater Canal - Thanks for keeping your wake down! I'm keeping my gheenoe at a little dock on the canal, and the people who live out there have told me that boaters are being much more considerate...

The new sound file is perfect now and I have it on the animation. (m) Whitebear, the way you sink a gheenoe is to have a tourboat blow over an aluminum v-hull and punch a fist sized hole in the side. I understand accidents happen, but I really shouldn't have had to find out about it only after I bai...

Never Give Up!

Many thanks to the member who provided me with the airboat sound! You have to listen close, it's hard to hear behind all the bird sounds, but I think it adds a nice touch. I promised I would put up a link to the animation when it was done, so here it is: m It still needs a bit of work (I haven't lea...

Need sound of Airboat

This is a strange request, I know, but I need a short .wav recording of an airboat. I'm creating a Flash animation and I have an airboat waaaay in the background and it would be much more realistic with sound effects. I don't have any sound editing software, but I know a lot of you are multi-talente...

Just in case you get stuck with no sprayers or soap, here's a low-tech way to get unstuck....chop off palmetto fronds and shove the stem ends of a few of them under the boat as far as you can. Make a trail of fronds over the dry patch - they are slick and can get you moving along to a wet spot. My 2...

Thanks, T-Rex, I appreciate your concern. I don't fly a flag when I'm on the main river or canals, but when the water is high enough to take my gheenoe on the trails I fly one! I also drive trails standing up so my view is better (and the boat rides higher). I also believe in being aware of my envir...

I'll warn you now - the turnoff to the Airboaters Asso. ramp is hard to see, even if you know where it is.
