Well, I am a Chinese, I make airboat due to many people died in the flood of 2017 in China. Hope what i did can rescue more people in the flood.

Ladyblackwater Do you have contact for your guy in Japan, if these guys are going to be rescuing people in Airboats they really need to be trained before they kill somebody or get them selves killed especially in regions that airboats are very uncommon, just running an Airboat there is a lot to know but using one for Search & Rescue is a whole other skill set

World is very small, so Gray Hill is Randy's Dad, and passed due to cancer. Gray Hill is the introducer in the Video with Japanese Ko.
So which company or organization of Randy ? What's his email? He still work as airboat introducer?

No, The night I signed up for Southern Airboat I had a few drinks and was jamming out to a AC DC album, The Razors Edge.. So that is where I got my user name from. The drive caught my eye, I am one of the very few Blue Lighting drive owners out there.
