new airboat owner

Postby greenswampfox » Wed Jul 03, 2013 9:14 pm

I bought an airboat recently before reasearching it too well, after reading these forums I'm hesitant in taking it out till I can find someone experienced to go out with me and teach me the basics, i'm in South Lake county not sure where would be the best place to take it out and learn.
I would appreciate any advise

I live in downtown Groveland. If you want to stay local and just get the hang of things you can ride off of Browns Ford Bridge just north of Groveland on hwy 19. There are some marsh areas to ride but mostly deep water. Lately we have been riding the Withlacoochie River and putting in at Lake Panasoffkee right next to the Dam Pub. I believe we are going out Sunday morning for a little ride. There is everything out there from running ground, skinny water, deep water, and even some wooden bridge crossings. Just depends on what kind of boat you have and what your boat is capable of. Let me know if you want to go ride.
