Re: someone put blocks on the trail

Kenny and I hit the same block in his boat when we took it for a ride a couple weekends ago. Stuff like that really pisses me off. I'm not going to be happy when i hit one in my boat. Seems to be a lot of that up this way. Something i'm not used to from down South.

Re: WOW what a motor

It is an inner cooler. What is even more impressive is the fuel system that is built into the back of their Alien intake (which this motor has). Here is a 10 minute video explaining the system. It is one of the coolest things about their motors IMO besides the fact that they make unimaginable power....

That boat is going to be BAD! Can't wait to see it in person. Nelson is the best in the business. I think it will run like a top.

Re: Hand laying cage wire

If your rigging isn't stainless I wouldn't waste your time with hand laid stainless wire. JMO. If you can do everything in stainless then it is the way to go.

Re: He was not a happy camper!

He was rather pissed that we interrupted his sun tanning so he decided to bite my boat. First gator i've ever seen actually bite a boat. Tore the carpet some along with a few snaps and put a few scratches on the boat, makes for a good story though. lol http://www.southernairboat.com/photopost/data/5...

So the video is when you were running back EAST to the ramp? Feel free to send me a PM if you saw any teal birds out there. I need to get away from where all the high schoolers are going to hunt.

Re: Riding Lake Iamonia (Tallahassee) *Video*

Yes you still have to drive out into the lake to launch. From the North launch I would say it is about 20-30 yards to the water. On the South end it's almost to the ramp about 5 yards or so. So its just 5 yards from the Hwy 12 boat ramp? When we launched the first week of gator season, we had to dr...

Make sure and look over your boat!

Taking the boat off the trailer bent the polymer lip due to the ramp dropping off (the lip caught on the right runner on the side of the trailer). I didn't notice it until after about an hour of running. When I got to Big Jims to eat lunch I turned the boat the the right to park and almost rolled th...
