Airboats with Windshields and Cabs

Postby Wild Bill » Fri Dec 31, 2010 3:14 pm

starting to think about my next hull and it would be great to see some pictures of cold climate boats that have cabs or a windshield. I don't know if I will do a dual driver station or not as I do like the visibility of being up high however at least windshield near the front for passengers and windbreak/windshield for rear side by side driver. I recall seeing some pics however did a search and wasn't real successful. Thanks again!

Just bought this boat with a nice cab on it. Shipping it up to AK on the 8th of April.
Should be a great moose/bear hunting machine.

I can not ware enough clothes to keep me warm when running for two or three hours @ < 40*f so I went to a windshield and added heated seats and steering. I know they did make a 12v hot water heater for making coffee on the run.

If you plan on adding a windshield I recommend use a high angle if possible, a flat surface to the wind will kill performance.

For those interested in adding a front windshield, we have the triple front window design that can be bolted or welded on any existing boat. Also have a walk-thru windshield that's done the same way. It's bent out of one piece of aluminum and looks really clean.

@Shane- If you still sell the front windshield can you post a picture of one?

Thanks

A few weeks ago we were out in Potts watching Shane do a final hull test and tune on a new Revo they were delivering to Central Florida.
He was talking about some new hulls being built and appeared to be doing well.
