Re: Anybody ride in Western IA?

That eagle head is what I have on my rudders so if you see that it will be me out there. I run out of Lake Platte View which is up by High Way 92. I come down to I80 every once in a while, or to the mouth of the Elkhorn. From where we run out of we are blocked from going upstream most of the time by...

Re: Anybody ride in Western IA?

Hello lighthouselowflyer,
I know there are a few in the Red Oak IA area. You do not have to worry about having a slow boat. I have to stay out of the way of the big boys (and Girls) out there also. I normally just bring up the rear when I am boating with a bunch.

Re: First airboat questions.

Welcome to Southern Airboat. I have not done any business with these folks but this may be a place to start checking as it will be fairly close to you. I do know they had a booth at Thunder on the Loup last year here in Nebraska so I would guess they are interested in selling to airboaters. Horn Pla...

Congratulations,
You both did a great job and gave that young lady a big jump start on life. I was raised by my grandmother for part of my life and looking back she had the biggest impact on my life of anyone. So be proud you did great.

Re: best prop

You could try a 2 Blade Q Series. They can be made as short as 66 inches. I had a 72 inch 2 Blade Q Series that replaced my old 3 blade IVO Pro and it was like getting a new boat. With the IVO I would get stuck in 6 inches of water. With the 2 Blade Q Series I could pull up on a sand bar and get bac...

Re: Side by Side vs Inline Seating

Here is another option for you. My boat is 14x7.5 and I went with a double wide seat as the drivers seat and I am a little larger than you reported. I have room in that seat for cute little things or if I am driving alone I can slide to the right a little and be in the center so the boat runs level....

Re: NEW 426CI Gen III HEMI AIRBOAT COMING VERY SOON

Congratulations on the new boat.

I like the looks of the new open hull that dyna-marine is building. Their new open hulls do great tricks also.

Looking forward to seeing it out on the river.

Re: Anybody have pictures of 4 seat 13ft glss hull with carm

Mine is a 7'6" x 14 Bullfrog hull. I went with a double seat in back and a triple in front. The reason I used a double in was so when I was running alone I could slide to the right a little and help keep the boat balanced. I do not know if that thought helps you or not. I still have room up top...
