Re: Swamp people

I like watching it also. It is interesting when you have never been around anything like that in your whole life. But you do not have to worry I will not be doing anything more than coming down for a visit. I just do not have enough brains to be around anything that could be dangerous to long or I w...

Re: Lets hear about WHO you learned Airboating from.

I'm still learning. My wife and I was thinking about getting a boat and I wanted a ski boat but she wanted an airboat after we took a ride on Bryson's Airboat Tours. So we looked for quite a while and ended up getting a fixer upper. I worked on it putting on new seats and gauges and cleaned up the i...

Re: Best way to polish and shine up rudders??

I used to polish truck aluminum fuel tanks. Using jewelers rouge if the dings are not to deep they can be worked out. To get them out you are removing metal when you are buffing them out. I suggestion is use several differant levels of jewelers rouge and a buffing wheel when you get them to the leve...

Re: Best way to polish and shine up rudders??

I am guessing that your rudders are aluminum. The best products I know of at this time is these. What I used to use is no longer made but these work as good or better. Platte River Jake on SA here is the one that sells these products. Contact him if you have any questions. http://www.purplepolish.or...

Re: Need Airboat Crash or Accident Pictures

This is what happens when you slide them into a log pile sideways. That's an interesting hull. What brand of hull is it? Is it Nebraska made? And also interesting structure on the motor stand. Looks more similar to an ironing board stand the way it's braced. Also never seen anything like that. I'm ...
