Re: 3A-3B closed ?

Thanks for the link and it sounds like the gates are already open and it may be quite a while before the water goes down and we get back in 3A.

Re: MY NEW MAMBA AIRBOAT!!!!

Great looking airboat.
I'm looking to add an LED Light Bar to mine. Do you like yours? What brand and where did you get it if you don't mind?

Re: FWC CLOSING THE GLADES

I called FWC's South Regional office yesterday and was told alligator hunting and frogging is allowed in 3A South from airboats. Apparently the news release has it wrong.
I suggest you call and verify for yourself.

Re: Riding in 2A

Thanks for the info. and I did check it out on Google Earth. Is there another area between there and Naples that's not closed you would suggest we ride? We've never been any where except 3A South.

Riding in 2A

Since 3A South is closed, a friend and I are thinking about leaving Naples and heading to 2A and ride a little. Never been there so any input on where to launch and which direction from there to do a day ride would be appreciated. Friends in town from up North and gotta take them riding.

How to get more HP from a stock 8.1

I have a friend with a stock 8.1 Levitator on a 15'8 Diamond Back and he's wondering if there is soft ware to re-tune and up the HP on it, and if so who can do it? I believe it's 425 HP now.
Thanks

Re: 3 A South tomorrow

Made it but I don't recommend it until there is more water. Ran dry from puddle to puddle. Doubt I could have gotten any farther North than the Crystal Palace.

3 A South tomorrow

I plan on launching at 40 Mile Bend tomorrow and see if I can make it as far North as the Crystal Palace area. Looks like it's coming a small shower out there now. Wish me luck.

Re: Percision gear box.

I have a precision and it rattles like a bucket of bolts at idle also. From what I know this is completely normal. They do use a special oil and you might want to check with the builder for the specs. on the oil. He advertises in Airboating Magazine and is very helpful.

Anyone know what the state is building at MM 52 on Alligator Alley and the L 28 canal? Looks like a parking area and boat ramp into L 28?

Re: Miccosukee Area Closed for how long?

Hey Cowboy, no problem. I've unhooked the airboat and hooked up to the CC boat. It's cheaper to run anyway. I might go to 3A south tomorrow.
