Re: ''Airboating'' in the winter in AK.

Loved it BKMail. Setting here in a snow storm today here in Omaha, Ne. I can not go out because I just had hand surgery so I had to watch the wife try and run the snow blower. That was painful. Keep your videos coming I enjoy watching what others are doing in the winter months.

Re: our new airboat

Looks great. You are correct about the water being high and not safe. From our camp ground alone we have had 3 airboat sunk that I am aware of. No real damage to the boats they were just swamped as far as I know.
