Re: One Hell of a Ride

I had a similar situation happen to me several years back by a builder around the clewiston area that is no longer in business. Paid half the money up front over $7000 to use my old motor and build me a new boat with a new prop. He ran off with my money and several others, leaving my boat all torn a...

Re: Airboat collides with FWC airboat in glades

Coast Guard rules do apply to all state waters of the state... Rules like unsafe speed, improper lookout and others come to mind. Also anyone who takes someone out for hire weather it's a tour, fishing trip, or hunting are required to have a captains license... I'm not placing blame on one or the ot...

Here's the sign from my phone's camera. Addition holes in the sign were installed prior to my arrival. lol Just my opinion, it says no "motorized vehicles", it doesn't say anything about vessels...

Re: Here we go again!!! "there is no other option they say"

Yeh it is still around 14' but what you don't know is they keep "toying" with how they measure the depth. A few years back I can remember when it was around 14' and I would have a few feet of water under my boat in the marsh. Today at 14' my boat is sitting on dry ground in the same spot. They mess ...

There are plenty of people who care and want to make a difference! But we have pride and demand respect, we will not be lied to or treated like kids! It is an insult.

Re: I want to bring this to the S.A. Brotherhood 1st !

If you look at a property appraiser's website in any county of this state, you will see that FWC owns very little to any land. Most lands are owned by a water management district and FWC is charged with patrolling them since water management has no officers. With that being said I think it is absolu...
