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

You will never make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, Gerald. Pigs are everywhere. It's hard to find a trash pile in flying Eagle. This is only the second time, as far as I know, than an outside concert of live music has been produced for airboaters only. First one was a year ago. Matt Farris and JB ...

Have you tried starting your cranking process with your mag switches off? Sounds like a bit too much timimg to me. Get it spinning, then flip mag switches

Re: hull handling?

Bud's airboating woes have been a well documented and an ongoing saga for years. Most of us on here are frugal. We have to be. Bud has been told LOTS of times what will fix his stated issues and he usually works twice as hard to find a $$$ shortcut that has never worked out, so he has to chase hard ...

Re: hull handling?

Lots of folks pull 7'10" wide bottoms, Bud. The wider the bottom, the lower amount of power to put it on top and the higher it floats. The CHEAPEST fix is to replace your hull with a wider, flat bottom surface. I have not seen a photo of your bottom's shape -- but, I'd bet it is not flat for the ent...

Re: hull handling?

Bud, You don't have an 8' wide hull. You have a 6'8" or whatever - wide hull. The width at the top has NO BEARING on hull stability in the water. 7'9 or 10" is usual on hulls that are 8' at the top. Your engine and house are very high for any airboat. If you drop the house a foot and lower your engi...

KRVSA has moved the Lake Cleanup to Shady Oaks. For several very good reasons, the anual Kissimmee Lake Cleanup has been moved from Thomas Landings to Shady Oaks. Best of those reasons is the access road into Thomas Landings is practically impassable, even for lifted 4X4 trucks. There is no real ho...
