Re: Found gun, Big Cypress

The lack of firearms knowledge displayed in this thread is odd. Given that most are active sportsmen. There is nothing to do but what the OP has done. He jumped on a couple message boards to get the word out and is standing by for a response. Yes I noticed how old the thread is. There is no..trackin...

Re: common sense and coutesy

I was not there and OP's rant lacks info and context.. Let's look at the other possibilities when these issues come up. People sometimes place themselves and their boats in a place that leaves little to zero room for others to maneuver around or past them, without the other operator being forced int...

Re: Flags for everyone ?

The flag requirement should not be "vessel specific". It should be "area specific". Anywhere vegetation restricts vision, EVERYONE needs a flag. This is a no brainier. This is going to cost a life (if it hasn't already) unless it becomes law. This is not an airboat thing. If any...

Not even I believe that and I am a cynical bstrd... Do you have any idea of the crap storm that would follow if Management knowingly hired non licensed Captains. I am not buying it. They would already be shut down and Insurance Company would have already pulled coverage. Well how about this...........

Re: 21 injured in SW Dade airboat crash

It's hard to tell from the video but the starboard vessel does not have the right of way due to being the starboard vessel. In the video it looks as though the starboard vessel is overtaking the other vessel which means he yields the right of way. It's all about the true angle and speed which from ...

Re: 21 injured in SW Dade airboat crash

Vessel to Starboard has the right of way. I see no special circumstances. Both boats are in sight of each other with plenty of room to maneuver as long as it is done in a timely fashion. Vessel to Port should have slowed down and or turned to Starboard as soon as he realized another vessel was cross...

Have to wait and see where the Coast Guard goes with it but... Before the left hand vessel turned...Vessel to Starboard has right of way. Two power driven vessels meeting @ near 90 degree angle. Vessel on left of video @ Fault for not giving way. Vessel on left does not slow down and changes course ...

Re: No luck buying ammo today

....? I see your in West Palm. I was in Gander on Friday. I saw every kind of ammo you could think of.
I did not specifically look for steel but I did notice that there were no large sections missing ammo. They had 9mm, .40S&W, .45, a table with cases of shotgun target ammo. Curious.

Ok guys. I tried the search thingy. Did not find what I really wanted. Most of the answers i found related to ground power conversions.

You can not use feeding people as an excuse. Agree or not with current take and limits. It is about managing the resources for all, not just you. If we allow uncontroled take and limits the the ecosystem will crash. Most of the scum bag poachers at this level also do not pay any taxes thus placing a...

Thanks in advance: Heres the issue. Older boat was built and set up with wood prop. If changing to composite prop do we need to think about flex in the blades...I will guess much more on a warp drive than say a Q or more stout 2-3 blade. The issue is...distance between prop and rudder and or prop ti...
