Looking for basic / beginner threads or info. I think I want an airboat but have zero info or background. I did a search but didn’t turn up anything. Where should I look?

Welcome to SA! :thumbleft:

Here is a good thread to read: viewtopic.php?f=132&t=30116

Where are you located?

First off welcome to SA! Secondly fill in your location, might be someone near you with experience to help you with any questions you might have. Go into the forum section and READ as much as you can. Type of boat will be based on your needs or wants as far as what you plan on doing with it, the type of water you'll be running, number of passengers , car motor vs aircraft, glass hull vs aluminum and the list goes on. at one point or another we were all new. Best advice I can give right now is READ and don't rush into a purchase. If you find something that meets your wants or needs take someone that is experienced in airboats to help you go over it. Almost any question you could ask can be found on this forum just use the search block.

Like the rest have said add a location . There could possibly be someone offer a ride so you can get an idea and go see other setups . Beer and gas offered goes a long way in getting a ride lol.
