Hi Curtis, glad to see you and Ashley found a place to ride out there. Two and a half hours seems like a long drive to get to the water but I guess that's how it is out west. The main thing is you found water! :thumbleft:

Did you see any other airboats there? Keep us in mind and come back and see us when ya'll can. Later, Rich

Ran In the deep parts until i found this part all other boats couldnt go out there so it was like my own play area.......MAn was it awesome. Oh and Ill get pics up as soon as my wife can get them too me. :rebel: :florida:

The way I describe a airboat to people that never seen one before is it's a boat that 's 4 WHEEL DRIVE :lol: :lol:

Nice, I always wanted to run the 'Butte!' I used to live in Los Alamos and ran my hovercraft on the Rio Grande between Cochiti Lake and the bridge going to Los Alamos....the White Rock Canyon. I ran the Rio Grande for several years as a volunteer with the Albuquerque Police during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. We ran mostly hovercrafts, but once in a while, the Fire Dept. would get their rescue airboat out, too. Sad thing is, though, that most of the river is pretty well inaccessible for a fair bit N & S of Albuquerque. The only put-ins are near the bridges and behind locked gates. Cochiti is huge, but is classified a "No Wake" lake by the Corps of Engineers. The Corps Cops had a fit when I was training the local Indian Pueblo officers how to use their new hovercraft. You see, we leave NO wake!
