Mike every hull starts lookin' bad when all the pretty stuff wears off right?! lol. Heck I should have kept that pic of my hull before it was redone down in Bartow; It was a blue sheet box from 1992 beat black and blue. Now its a clean, green and mean lil river snake. Thanks for the compliments yall.

Hey everyone. Don't have an airboat yet, but going to be fixing that problem in the next few weeks. Just wanted to check in to see if any of y'all are still up in this area. And if there are any good places to ride? I live in the jax beach area, but don't mind traveling a bit to get to some good spots. I'm mainly getting a boat for running out to our camp in the glades, but want to be able to have some fun up here when i can't make the trip down south.

Hey Jason. Kicking around some ideas about going up to visit my friend from the Withlacootchee area to ride with him again (the big guy on the ac boat that was riding with me ). You ever ride over there?

I have a friend that lives there. Jason met him at the Freedom Ride and thought he might like to come down when I head up for a visit. Thanks, though.

Will do. Nick would like to get together the last weekend in March but not looking good for us. My son is on a school trip and gets home on the 29th. Plus, don't know what the wife's schedule is yet. If we can work it out, does that work for you?

FI or Carb? Did u try to disconnect from the carb and fill the line that way? Or disconnect from carb and see if Ur fuel pump will prime up. Any way air could be getting in the line? Where u located in Jax.

Whoops meant 3A.

Picked the boat up late friday night, made the ride out to camp fine. Woke up early saturday morning to really give it a good run.

Boat runs great! It aint a showboat, but don't care. Had a blast sliding around. Couldn't be happier with the purchase. Going to do some more riding tomorrow, then pack up and trailer it all the way back to Jax.

We all need to plan a get together and do some riding soon.

Yeah there's a few ponds in the town center that you could slip into. Totally illegal but at least it's not saltwater :lol:

We usually head to central Florida to ride. That's why I just keep my boat back home in ocala.
