Thanks for all the comments on the air ride, good and bad. I just read all the posts and it made me feel good that after all the time We spent on R&D has paid off.

I noticed all of our customers that had the Air ride on their boats were very happy with the product. Its very rare that a new product gets that kind of rating.

I'm not a sales person so I won't be giving any sales pitches. I am a firm believer that the proof is in the pudding.
If any one is interested in the Air Ride system they are welcome to call me for a demo ride at 772-563-0435.

Its kind of funny because I call my boat my old fart boat. The suspension helps me enjoy air boating to a whole new level.

If I drive a boat without it, I would have to pack it in after a few hours because of vibration in the boat, choppy lake or running the hill takes a toll on my back and neck. With the air ride I can hunt hard all day long and not even get tired.

The Air Ride helped me so much that we wanted to share it with the rest of the air boating world. I know it takes a while for people to change old habits. When Henry Ford came out with the first car he was told " why would some one give up a good horse for that" .

So for the folks that are not sure, ride one.

The patented Air Ride system sells for $550.00 and is 19 lbs. in the box.
( Dealer pricing is available)

Thanks again and have a blessed day,
Dave Simpson

Heres the way I look at it.....I wouldn't buy an ATV without suspension. I wouldn't buy a jeep or buggy without suspension, so I'm going to put some suspension on my airboat!

52 lbs is pretty heavy, especially X2 or X4.
