Do you know if they will allow airboats out there all day? Or just until the cleanup ends at 1:00pm?

why waste your gas and time cleaning up someones lake when you are not welcome on it ??? let the kicker boats clean it up ... Let the property owners clean it up ... let the county spend money cleaning it up .. if we aint welcome 24/7 365 then screw them ... no need to suck up by being the trash man ..
Don't waste your time ... it is the only thing you can't get more of
.. if it accidentally looks like I gave advice please ignore it .. and notify me immediately

I am out on the chain alot with the jetskis. Have been my whole life. I have some friends who live on the lake. I have been tempted many times to push my airboat off the trailer and raise hell around the lakes for a while.....

That being said, Its not the "Clean up" part that has me excited. Its the fact that for one day, I can legally raise some hell on the chain. And pull up to Old Man Franks front door while the other boats tie off to the dock. :lol: I want to run back in the weeds where other boats cant get.


I am just wondering if the airboats have to get off the lakes at 1pm. Or are they welcome all day. Im just going to assume all day.. :cheers:

Where in my statement did I mention anything about wanting to piss people off?

Maybe you misunderstood me, I am not one of those guys who enjoy pissing people off. I am actually very considerate of others. All the Canals are a 'No wake" zone, therefor, of course everyone will be idling through them near houses. But who in the hell are you to judge if we want to get on the pedal a bit while running across the lakes? Airboats are not allowed out on the chain due to all the houses around them. AKA Loud engines running around everyday and all night will piss people off! So for one day a year, while doing a "Lake Clean up" they ARE allowed, and all the people living on the lakes understand the purpose of why they are out there! Why not have a little fun while cleanin up the waters?

Maybe I should word it different for you, I cant wait to get out on the chain with my airboat and HAVE A GOOD TIME FOR ONE DAY OUT OF THE YEAR WITH FRIENDS AND FELLOW AIRBOATERS.

I was asking a simple question on WHO ALL PLANS ON COMING OUT! Not for smart ass remarks.
