I have a GPU 220 that I had a jug replaced on back in February. Once I did that it started smoking (white smoke) from the right side exhaust which was the side I had to replace the separating jug on. I've been told a little smoke from a 220 is normal. It would only smoke during idle but goes away du...

The only difference between the two is the plus includes an anti wear additive, an anti corrosion additive and a metal passivator.

Re: What not to do on airboat

Where in Palm Beach are you at? I'm out of Lake Worth. Looks like everyone on here has given you some great advise. ALWAYS respect your boat. If you don't she will bite you when you least expect her to. Have fun and just get as much seat time as you can. Where did you ride at Lox or Lake O?

Garmin is the way to go. Depending on your budget I would check West Marine. They have been having a sale off and on on the Garmin 441s for $349 if you could settle for a 4" screen. It doesn't have the satellite imagery but you can buy it off a guy on ebay for $100 and its the same one from Gar...

Thank you Nomad. Guess I'll just keep the card since it does show the imagery at 1/2 mile which will still help in the instance it makes it easier to find land marks that don't show on the regular maps. It would of definitely helped my friend out when he got lost in 3a and didn't know which way to g...

Re: Best airboat runnin in central fl with cabin.rentals

If you want to head a little more south you can also go to River Ranch Resort just east of Lake Wales. They have an awesome hotel and after riding all day you can hit the rodeo that night. Then hell make another night run. When we go there we take the motorhome.
