Re: Alachua county Airboat ordinance

thanks Gladesman06, but this fight is far from over. they hate us and everything about us. not just airboaters, but sportsman in general.they hate hunters, fisherman or anyone else that uses what God has giving us as in mother nature. we're better stewards of the land than they are. we want it there...

Re: Alachua county Airboat ordinance

the judge ruled today that the ordinance is unconstitutional. they have 30 days to appeal. but theres a good chance they dont. so, WE WON. IF my attorney says this case should pave the way to defeat it in every county. if anyone else wants to fight it, i know an attorney that will fight tooth and na...

Re: IN FLA.. MY RAMP....AIRBOATS PROHIBITED...

there's already a noise ordinance in the state. (90dms cruise speed at 50 feet). any curfew or ramp restrictions are unconstitutional. when we win in Alachua county, every other county with airboat restrictions should be sued also.
