Re: Are Y'all Hearin' That...

I've been tied up in fire schools, fire/EMS calls and EMS classes for the last 3-4 months or so. So no life. Sounds like others doing the same too RE no life. Glad to see some folks are gettin out and enjoying it as they can though. I haven't had the boat out since duck season. Still about 12 dozen ...

Hey, I think I see the airranger that you never answered about in a pic or two there possibly. Figured with you being quiet about it all you'd traded it in or such.....

Re: PROJECT: AirGator

Dang, what all did I miss? Last I thought you had a 19x8 airranger? I bet smaller is a bit more fun on those tight river areas though! I"m the other way, wish i had one bigger than 16 for more folks and gear.

Let us know how she runs!

Re: FRUSTRATED with other boaters!!!

I fail to see how registration will change their attitudes at all. I'm all for regsitration though, should have been done a long time ago for use on public water.

Re: Rudder doesn't want to turn much to right under hard pow

Seems like 78 inch prop.. I"m guessing 12 inches from rudders.

Can and will check of rudders are in line with each other or not.

Which way to bend tabs and how much makes a difference?
