Heads up Area 2 airboaters

They just dropped the speed limit on Lox Rd. It's 35 from 441 to Parkside and 40 from Parkside to the ramp. BSO has been thick since they changed it.

This basic website has a ton of Tom's stuff on it. A lot of his info was used to shape the stance that we took at ACoE meetings and public commentary. Theres some cool stuff in there.

Re: Everglades Patrol

Killing Mr. Watson is a decent read. It's kinda slow and its based on stories, reports, and notes from the 1890's-1900's in the 10,000 Islands. The author takes some liberties but its based off the stories of a real person in a lawless area. Totch is very good. Hidden History of Everglades City &...

Re: Rebuild, replace, or convert a 220???

I started replacing jugs on my worn out 220 and the builder simply didn't want to sell them to me because he knew I'd be converting at some point and it was a waste of money. The parts are getting more and more expensive for 220's. Go 470 conversion and you'll be very happy. I put a 470 on my boat a...

Re: Rivermaster Airboats

I love my Rivermaster... 13'6 with a 470 and she ran up the hill no problem and I wasn't in the least bit worried running her across the lake when it was rough. I run down south mostly and it handles skinny water fine. My buddy ran his 15' 350/gearbox boat up the hill that day as well. My boat hops ...

Re: Riding in Area 2

Thats a shame, last year anyone who applied was issued the permit and we were told it would be that way this year. You had to put "airboating in area 2 south of the East West trail" in the comments but they were all approved.

Re: python in the glade's

The pythons are there and they arent going away. The ones people find on levees are either freak occurrences or staged pictures (snake was killed elsewhere and brought to the levee/road). The problem is the snakes are in areas where most people don't have access, but bet your ass they are spreading....

Re: Riding in Area 2

A lot of time the officers don't know the exact law so in a case like this its less hassle to just get the free permit and keep it with you.

Too many conflicting stories, just cover your ass and take 1 minute to get the permit.

Re: Zone 4 Airboating.... Worth it?

You have to sit through a similar presentation to drive on the beach in NC, I've done it a bunch of times before.

Re: Zone 4 Airboating.... Worth it?

Are all of the green primaries from Mitchell's airboat trails or are they airboat and buggy?

Seems like a decent amount of riding even staying on the primary trails.

Hows the rock situation down there?

Zone 4 Airboating.... Worth it?

Looks like the closure is lifted as of this coming Friday.

Is it worth getting an ORV sticker to go out there?

Re: Where to ride???

The closest Glades riding to you would be Area 2a You can access from the end of Loxahatchee Rd on the Broward/Palm Beach line Plug this in to GPS and it will get you there: 15490 Loxahatchee Rd Parkland, FL Or you could shoot across 80 and take 27 south to the Stub Canal but I think that would be a...
