South Carolina actually has a State Law banning Airboats from saltwater!! I have no idea why, but as such, the water cops classified a friend of mine's Hovercraft as an Airboat & ticketed him for running around the inlets around Charleston. I hate mindless laws & interpretations like this because one day I plan on running the Great Loop on a large Hovercraft I plan on building.

So do they outlaw LCAC training at Parris Island?
