:violent1: they just blew up my dream house!!!! .....
I told a chuck norris joke the other day to a youngster(probably mid 20's) and they looked at me with a confused look and said "whos chuck norris", i shook my head in shame , then asked if they knew who Dirty Harry or John Wayne was and the boy stood there in confusion ...... i just assume the new generation has no heros like mine did, or if they do i hate to think who they are , i remember the storys of my ol mans day hop along cassidy ,roy rogers and dale evans , red ryder , sgt preston of the yukon .

..... help me out fellas i know there are some ive missed from the good ol days

Looks like the four bad guy boats are all Thurman's. If you look close, it looks like they used a stand-in boat for Norris when the camp exploded. Because Norris's boat at the camp is different than the boat he pulls up to the dock at the end. The boat he pulls up to the dock with at the end looks like the old Tom Shirley Thurman.

There's also a really good airboat chase scene in Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach. Probably a 5 minute long scene of three or four Thurman airboats chasing each other around.

We sold the filming company the 15 ft panther that was used. They blew the house up wrong the first time so they had to rebuild it again. I still have wood from the house that wasn't burned up. That shot was taken between Harney Pond and Lakeport Lock. Chuck would not stay in Lakeport , he stayed in Okeechobee at the pier 2 while filming

LMAO-
Chuck Norris movies remind of Starsky & Hutch series.. They all have practice skids and burn out marks x 3-4 attempts. Even this sucker has movie all over it with pre ridden paths.
Someone is real board and hard to follow Chuck as a grand master or legend with so many takes to get it to his liking.

OK Cowboy?

Did you just get amazon fire tv and see this movie or was there another point to this post of poor acting - poor editing - poor airboating?

He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.

Poor acting???? Poor Airboating???? Come on man this is Chuck Norris!!! Look at that posture with a girl grip on the stick , his hair blowing in the wind. Shirt flapping behind him. Man that would make good TV. That front seat would have to go though.
