New South Florida Airboater

Post by Chris_J » Fri Oct 09, 2015 8:37 pm

Just got my first airboat this past weekend. 12x7 Chuck Hawk with a Continental IO-360C from a member here. Very excited to get out and start sliding. Replacing all the cables, do some painting, replacing seat covers and then going to see Airboat Gus for a little tuning. Should be out next month with a airboat buddy for pointers on driving. Been reading a ton of great info for new airboaters on the forum. Hope to be sliding with you guys soon.

Any suggestions on decently priced mufflers? Only has flex pipe on it right now.
