From Rags to well you 'll see !

Postby overkill17 » Fri Apr 25, 2014 6:31 pm

I bought my first airboat about 2 years ago needless to say it needed some work . I ran it , used it had fun then decided it was time for a rebuild .I have to send a shout out to Legends Airboats , great guys to work with I would suggest them to anyone , Rusty really helped me out , and Spotlight wraps ! The boat is now outfitted with a new rake . poly, partial top deck . Entire boat media blasted and then painted with Awlgrip ! I have some before and after pics coming !!!!

Boat looks awesome!! :cheers: I am currently redoing a lot of stuff on my boat, and have been thinking hard of doing a rudder rap, what is the number of the guy you used?
Thanks,

Can't believe that's the same boat you bought from brother in law . She looks sweet for 20+ year old boat. This was boat when first built. She has a lot of miles and good times on her.

What happened? You use the boat one weekend then put it up for sale?
