Re: Where is the love?

The old way how I was brought up is to help when ever you could to anyone in trouble and ask for nothing, What goes around comes around. Today's world is get anything you can when you can, it's their problem they should pay for help to get out of an emergency situation. So Sad people think this way !

Re: Chuck Norris Airboat

We sold the filming company the 15 ft panther that was used. They blew the house up wrong the first time so they had to rebuild it again. I still have wood from the house that wasn't burned up. That shot was taken between Harney Pond and Lakeport Lock. Chuck would not stay in Lakeport , he stayed in...

Re: Using airboat engines to fight forest fires

The only way to control wildfires in California is prescribed burning, getting rid of the excess fuel. The cost probably wouldn't be any cheaper but the damage an lives would be spared. They need to do alot more of this. Taking a air tanker with retardent a mile wide and burn in between in areas whe...

lycoming 540 airtime vs runout value

I have a IO-540K1E5 that has 745 total time hours on the logbook no prop strike, on a cottonmouth. If I wanted to sell the boat, would the engine be more valueable say than a rebuilt engine from a reputable engine builder? Thanks for any input

Re: best prop for a true 200

Had a Water Walker 70" on a 12 Ft Viking once , put 5 overweight men, a dog, guns, ammo, and decoys with a full tank of gas and 20mph head wind, ran 50 yards to the water on wet sand one morning with no problem. 3 hours later all of the runners broke in the hull and just did get back to the ramp.

I know it's frustrating, and I can see where you would be pissed about carrying it back so many times, but I think they are willing to make it right somehow. They don't need the bad publicity for sure. I've never dealt with these people before, but i have heard nothing but good things about them. I ...
