Check out the Mokai, macho jet powered kayaks..... Now that I got that out of the way, I couldn't recommend a better river boat than a airboat.

buy a deckover/Sled Then you wont have a thing to worry about. In my opinion they are the best beginner boat. But keep in mind they all can be sunk. They are not as top heavy as they look. Always take a friend or find someone off SA to go with you before you buy one if you don't know much about one. It will save you some heart ache. Good Luck!!!

What ever you get, you need to get trained on safe opperation first becaues just because there is Boat on the end of Air they ain't nothing like a regular boat so get some training before you get hurt or tear somethin up, learning the hard way is no fun and very expensive

:angel4: I kinda Liked what I saw over at American Airboat Inc. and they offered to teach me everything I need to know, so I'm looking at $40, to $60,000.00 for I good dependable, Search and Rescue boat... :angel4:

:stirpot: I don't Hunt or Fish, but I like the thought of an Airboat, and it would be perfect for the Rivers around me, so I see it as a good investment as I would have the only Airboat within 100 miles or so... 8)

I think you would be happier with a cayak.....I have a dinner idea for ya. You stir the pot and lick the spoon. :violent1: :violent1: :violent1: :violent1: :alaska:
