Re: OX-Drive Gearbox

Stinger477 is right, that box is amazingly quiet!! I have a rotator now but hopefully soon I will have one! I am not going to talk bad about any other box out there they all have quality products but the lack of gear noise is incredible!! Congrats to Dan on a great product!!

My wife's first ride

Yesterday I took my wife on her first airboat ride after four years of begging!!! Now my issue is what to get her!! I have a 12 x8.5 deck over that has a dd 400 sbc. What would be a good hull for her? I'm running a 13x7.5 DB 3/4 deck over and she loves it!!!
