I’m going to have a new boat built by GTO in the very near future. Either 16x8 with 509 BBC or 15x8 with LS3. Both will be 3/4 deck walkarounds.

That's an old school palm beach style dogleg steering. Tightest I've ever driven. Can't beat a riveted hull. I have a riveted Hull also for right now I like it a lot. Not good for where I run though.

I expect to get several more years out of these, as we found that on the first set, the flex pipe was under quite a bit of stress, which we alleviated in routing the p...
:florida: So he joined in 2015 and has 10 posts. Not an airboater. Everyone I know that runs the salt marsh is respectful. Had some guys in group of four a couple months ago that weren’t. Probably from out of town. P.S. my family has been here since early 1800’s. If he doesn’t like airboats, gtf out...

Fairly certain that any commercial operation that will be taking passengers for hire in a bay or open coastal area will result in the need for a larger factory aluminum boat. The members are spot on to outline the needs and expectations. Several guides and tour operators are active on here some wit...
