i got it bad.

Post by jopete »

well, went go drive a guys 12' deckover with the angle valve 300 on it yesterday.
lets just say it drove ALOT differant then my gpu rig. lol
i am planning on getting it, even though it is impractical as hell for what i do, and my wife is gonna be chapped at me for borrowing some money.
the way i see it, u only live once, and i want to see how fast i can cross the marsh. i almost hate to get the boat, it is way too pretty for me.
i'll post up some pics if the deal works out. It's a Don Davis hull with front driver and a double seat in the rear. It flat out hauls and likes to slide. it's like driving a corvette. i am pumped up. lol

I sold my boat back in July.. It hasn't bothered me at all.. Until last Sunday am - someone launched at the ramp down the road and it was the meanest, baddest sounding thing I have ever heard. I thought is was a friend of ours River Gary and his super charged car motor boat but it wasn't.. It was a 4 cylinder AC boat and the sweetest one I have heard ever heard. I was sitting with the wife on the back porch drinking coffee. As the boat idled by and came into view she looked at me - I was smiling. I have no idea who it was and I have never seen them or the boat before. It looked like he was testing it, going slow looking at his gauges etc. After he went out of view I could smell the AV Gas as I sat there 70 feet from the canal. He took off down the main trail and it gave me the chills.

Yes, you only live once and the bottom line is if it makes you happy it should make your wife or girlfriend happy too. I am trolling the classifieds again but when I do it again - I am going to do it right and either build or buy the boat that I always wanted.

Having it bad for airboats is a good thing i know how you feel on that 300 hp deckover, they are like a corvette and if you think that boat is expensive look into what a new LS3 boat will cost you and then you will know how much bang for the buck you are getting, have fun and be safe
