I'm sitting at sommerville the other day staring at a better boat than mine wishing.... and when I get to the parking lot to load up a guy stops and drools over mine saying all he has is a DD boat.... (of which I have one as my first one sitting in the barn waiting on motor work to sell...)
Then after all that I managed to park in a dumb place the other day(I seem to be more capable of that so far than not....) which was the incline part of the video that Shiggs shows, actually the other side of that dike which is a bit steeper. And low and behold I come back and there are mud boats either side of me preventing my plan of spinning around and back into the water.... so what do we do, from a stop, we fire up, warm up, and actually climb from a stop, all the way to the top of the dike to turn around... I was much happier at that point, but it barely did it....
One will always want more... take Crow.... wants 1000 HP.... Don't know if I want to ride that boat ever.... maybe drive it, but not ride it....
I have a pardnuh that runs a 13' Aluminum Red River Hull with a 4.3ltr v6 2 blade Whirl Wind prop & he does just fine... now granted in ain't a hill climber, but it'll do all the fishin' a fellow can stand & is very economical to run.
Well, I finaly got "OLD BLEW" back together after the longest polymer replacement in recent history. Took a couple laps around the flowerbed and loaded it back on the trailer. I plan on getting out to play in the water this weekend.
Man by the looks of the boats you guys have.... man you guys must have money or hocked to the Gills!!! I will post pictures tomorrow if you promise not to laugh tooooo hard!!!! LOL I think that 21diamondB had his pictures taken at glamor shots!!! Now no one looks that good coming out of the swamps!!!
Heck Shiggs if I told you how to do it id have to kill ya!!!! LOL I am not that smart my son did it... Ill find out and let you know!!!! Yes the Boat is VERY NIMBLE!!! Still getting use to it! Sometimes it seem like it is possessed and has a mind of it's own... Not really... I am getting use to it... Totally different airboat than I am use to!!! I have had Many but this is my first fiberglass...Does come out of the hole pretty good!!
I will get with my son and see if he can show me how he does it!!! Take Care and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Nope Nope Nope no Santa and your Smiles was a big Smurf! hahhahahaha One of the only things I did not like about the boat when I bought it was..... They did not put a primer and tried to paint over the galvanized metal and it is pealing and flaking... I will have to take it off the boat someday and sand blast and install new primer and paint... Cage is power coated.
Ok, I went back and tried to clean the thread a bit to keep it on topic of showing folks what boats your running. When it gets into personal attacks its that or it goes to "Out Back". for now I think its fine here with the deletions. If ya really got personal gripes take it to PM or at least try to inject some humor in it.
Like those fish cookin lights yall run out there LOL !
