Good show Frank ! ! ! ! I remember seeing it a while back as you were putting it together piece by piece. Dave or Mike either one don't sell no junk. When I looked I remember thinking that that thing looks better than any factory Mass Produced engine I have ever seen.

I'm happy it worked for you like it did. Good hull, fine power and prop, thats the makings of success and satisfaction !

Cool beans I was wondering how your maiden voyage went. Do you see what I mean now about not having to worry about getting stuck when running dry anymore! Give me a call and let me know all the details. Maybe this weekend if you ride we can meet up and I can help you fine tune her a bit. You did a fine job of putting your boat together!

Frank has a much lighter boat with nothing on it but the bear necessities! Plus Frank will not be hauling four or five people around where ever he goes. All airboats will get stuck but he will not be getting stuck where he use to get stuck with his old 220 I can assure you of that. Hey Frank tell these guy’s what you really think about your new combo will it run the hill waaaaaaaay better then your 220 did or not! How hard do you think it will be to get it stuck!
