Re: need advice on a new hull

I THINK MOST PEOPLE WOULD RECOMMEND WHAT THEY OWN WHEN IT COMES TO AIRBOATS. I AM NOT ANY DIFFERENT. I BOUGHT A NEW HAMANT IN 2006 WITH A WATERTHUNDER MOTOR AND I LOVE IT. IF I EVER BUY ANOTHER AIRBOAT IT WILL THE SAME COMBINATION. THE QUALITY IS TOP NOTCH AND THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS ALSO.
