Gator hunt Lake Orange

I was awarded permits for this lake. The last time I was there was to duck hunt about 7 years ago, and we used a mud devil. Does any one know if a regular outboard can make it, I heard that due to the drought there are large floating tussocks making navigation tough.

Thanks

Pontoon camping

Regretfully, I'm leaving the airboat at home and embarking on a pontoon camping trip around Lake George. I plan to stay on the boat and

navigate around the varoius springs and rivers. Does anyone have any pointers? Thanks

Re: SwampStock II /Sat. Dec. 6 / Hot Dog / live band 1p - 4

Was at Hotdog a few days ago, it was pretty clean except for some beer cans .I don't know people leave them in the fire ring, I guess they are scared to leave them on the boat. Good luck with the event.

Mag question

What is a normal drop in rpm when turning off one mag. (for airboat)? Shouldnt both mags be equal ?

Ive heard aircraft specs to be only 50 rpm drop, I should be able to run on one mag but one of mine

really seems to not be hot enough.

Thanks in advance

Re: eagle water level

I was riding the eagle last week and talked to a few people on hot dog island who said they heard the authorities want to dig a resovoir somewhere out there????? If this is true, it will only make the ridable areas worse when the water level is low. I'll buy into the theory of airboat control. As a ...

Re: Starter?

It looks like a Toyota, similar to what I have on my 0540, mine came off a camry, I went to advance auto they were able to hook me up. Don't know where your from, but some of the auto stores near where we ride, the guys are pretty resourceful.

Re: I'm riding Hernando next weekend 9/27/14

If you do decide to ride the trails to Sleepy Hollow, keep heads up, that's probably the most narrow and limited sight on the loop. Especially on the weekend with more boat traffic. It is a nice ride and now there is plenty of water.
