Re: Transom angle?

I have always had an angled transom. I like that a backwash from behind usually just lifts rear and very little water comes over.

Re: Transom angle?

If you build from bottom up, how do you lose bottom? If bottom is 14' then sides will be longer than 14'. Mine is 14' from bottom of transom to nose . If you measure nose to splash lip on angled transom it's over 15' at top.

Re: Bar on Withlacoochee near Inverness

Oh, it's going to take a lot of effort. Maybe will open with tiki and outdoor stage first? But it could be done, they go from dirt to turn key homes in The Villages in 42 days.

Re: eagle water level

The source of the Withlacoochee is Green Swamp , there is a huge well field there. I think 4 wells , when it was under construction the pipe delivered was 4 or 5 foot diameter . This was 30 or 35 years ago.

Re: eagle water level

Well if flow rates have been reduced at Green Swamp that's a start. Why they close locks and keep Inverness up and allow the Eagle and Potts to dry up is beyond reason . A few years ago at Nichols Springs on River you could cross river and never get waist deep.

Re: Bar on Withlacoochee near Inverness

On the Withlacoochee it would have been Turners Fish Camp & Bar . It burnt down several years ago , but is being rebuilt by new owners and is scheduled to reopen at end of June. It was always a stop when running the Loop.

Re: eagle water level

Before SWFMD the water flowed freely thru the chain of lakes. It cleansed itself, and water tables were cyclical from high water to low depending on the season, but we're never as low as in recent years. Pasco county started selling water to Hillsboro county and levels were affected. A system of loc...

Re: eagle water level

The CCAA Swimming Hole was named that when water flowed freely between the two islands and it was sand bottom , clear water. Now you couldn't pay me to swim there, stale rotting muck is all that ie there.

Re: promaxx heads

I had the chance to watch dyno pulls of the same short block with three sets of heads . Dart, Pro-comp, and AFR , the Pro-comps and Darts were within a ft lb or 2. The AFRs were 17 ft lbs more. Pretty much same story with horsepower with AFRs making most . The downside like Flying FIsh said is you a...

Re: Turner Fish Camp

I heard from a realtor that someone was looking but with asking price and up grade to sewage system sale didn't go thru . Hopefully someone will purchase it and bring it back .

Re: Turner Fish Camp

If asking price for Sleepy Hollow is what I heard , it ain't never going to happen. 8x the price of Turner Camp and Turner Camp is larger property.

Turner Fish Camp

Turner Fish Camp to reopen on the Withlacoochee River under new ownership . It has been a landmark on the River for decades that burnt down several years ago. It was always a pit top when running the loop or a draw stop on Poker Runs.

Re: Bo White running CCAA 2015 Airboat Rodeo

Like I posted on my Face Book page " Sliding in Citrus" the White Boyz proved why they are 'The Wizards of the Marsh". They had the boat up and running in no time at all. I think Bo had the winning time on this run until the roll. Took it to the edge.

Drone footage was cool. That must have been early because there were still open parking places. When I got there a little after 11 it was packed, had to park way down on backside and walk.
