Airboat Docking Solutions

Hey guys, I've got a place where I cannot pull up on the hill to keep the boat (too rocky). I keep the boat at a dock, but docking an airboat sucks and a dock beats the crap out of the cage and the sides of the boat, especially in rough weather. I've seen a couple of boats around me that are using s...

Exhaust System Corrosion

How do you guys, especially ones that run the salt water, eliminate exhaust system corrosion. I have 2 month old headers, flex pipe and mufflers that are already starting to show corrosion. Any tips? I wash boat after every use and wash it with Salt Terminator after every use in salt water. Am I mis...

Re: Kissimmee River

I don't see enough marsh worth running in the areas you're describing on Google Earth. Anyone ever rode this area? It's only about an hour from me but I'm always interested in new places to ride.

Went on a guided fishing trip with a guy that had the SIMRAD with the Google Earth overlay. That thing was awesome. It even had the oyster bars highlighted.

Re: Chart Plotter

Well the Garmin 76 series goes from 8 inch screen to a 26in screen not sure what size you're looking for then When I searched online the only one that came up was very small. I'll check again thanks.

Chart Plotter

Going to put one on the new boat and was wondering if anyone had any input on these? I'm staying with the side mounted instrument panel so I can't go too big, but I do want to go big enough to be able to see it when I'm driving. Any ideas? Also if you have any pics of your mounts on those side instr...

Re: Running in salt water

Where are you guys running in salt water with airboats? Every place I’ve been in my skiff I would never take my airboat. Many idle zones with huge wake from aholes driving around Pine Island Bay, then north, as far as Fish Creek and Haulover, which is just south of Chaz. Must be more than 1 Fish Cr...

Re: LOOKING FOR A WATER CHECK IN THE MICCOSUKEE RES

The gauges are all still reading at or slightly below ground level. Talked with someone who went out 2 weeks ago in their buggy on the north end, and said it was so dry it was dusty :o . We need it to keep raining like it has been for another couple of weeks and we should be good to go.

At one time there was a link to a hazards map on here. Would be a good place to put some coordinates on it so everyone could store them in their GPS.

Re: Building a 70k airboat

I'm doing it and I tell you why. If I had more time (I run my own business as well as coach high school football, plus manage several properties) I'd build my own, or buy some fixer upper and go all the time that way I knew it ran etc. However, that isn't my deal. When I go it's for a rare weekend w...

Re: Lookin For Miccosukee Res, and 3A South Froggin info

Scotty I was at camp 2 weekends ago and the water was perfect. Our camp is on the north end of the rez. One of the farthest north so we get skinny quick. Rode down to swimming hole and water was fine. Should've actually come up a bit more w/that last bit of rain we had.

Re: Car motor longevity

I had my builder tell me that they get 2-3000 hrs on some of the crate motors they put in tour boats. Again, I'm sure this is if they are properly maintained. I've got close to 500 on mine and it's 14 years old and still running strong.

Putting passengers forward gives the operator more control of the guests. It also reduces the risk of them getting fingers injured around belts and machinery. This is my preferred set up.
