Need to ride some different boats

Post by Hog Guts » Sun Nov 30, 2014 10:56 pm

I'm in the process of deciding to get an engine and what type, buying another boat and what type etc. my engine blew up over thanksgiving and I want to try and learn more before spending more $$$. Bought my first airboat last December and put about 150 hours on it the last 11 months and it's something I'm not willing to do without now :) Anyone who is willing to let me tag along for a ride I'm happy to pay my way I just want to experience some different types of rigs. I had 12ft aluminum with 520 conversion that was healthy and I'm leaning towards a 540 for same hull but I haven't pulled the trigger yet just not positive what to do. Pm me if you don't mind educating me a bit about what you may have. I'm in brevard county don't mind driving a bit but not too far thanks. Scott

I'll take you for a ride on the old single rudder antique with my 160 and hit the button and you can feel the 300 hp of a 540 coming out of the old four banger! Lol :shock: :thumbleft: :old_glory: :florida: :rebel:

You can ride along with me and learn what you definitely don't want pushing your boat!
