Scott , I don't have a airboat as we speak but have been wanting one for sometime now . I live off of JTB as well . I do know that some people ride down in palm valley . You put in at 210 bridge and go south . ( Deep water till you get to the marsh ) also some ride northside around Black Hamock Island . They put in at a boat ramp off of Levey Road I believe . Some ride black creek and the St. Johns around there ( but to me that would be alot of deep riding there ) There is a few people onsite from around here . I hope they chime in for you . Well at least I know there is at least one more Airboat near me when I finally get one . I'm sure I'll need the help when I get my first one . Thanks Hill Welcome to the site !!! It's the best ... give me a call if you have any questions 868-1796

Cj thanks for taking the time to explain the low down on boating around here...It is greatly appreciated! With details like that i must confess to being blind should i fail to find place to slide at! I'll have to keep an eye out for ya and buy ya beer at the outback crab shack when i get all situated down here :)

bsquires thanks for the invite, I haven't been out on lake George in years but would like to go explore it again. However, I did hear about some nasty weather that came through there about a month or two ago and capsized 3 or more boat and took 2 kids lives. I guess it can be pretty damn rough out on that big lake when the sun aint shinin :(
