Carol, I've messed around and put this off for much too long.

I promise ..... I'll come up in a few weeks, boat in tow, and we'll either ride or do a lot of talkin' about it. If Paul is real busy then I'll drink some of your coffee. I'm easy.

What the riding like in that part of Georgia is it river running or is there swamp and marsh like in florida, If there is marsh like in Florida I'm going to have to make a trip down there

Sniper,our running here in Bainbridge is not swamp but almost the same we have a lot of Hydrilla and skinny water,as well we have a lot of stumps but not where we ride.We have airboat trails all through the woods from pond to pond.Lake Seminole is a reservoir.We have the Flint River that runs into Lake Sem.and it runs into the Chattahoochee and into the Apalachacola.Lake Sem.is the big lake where all the Bass fishermen come to have their tournaments.Look at your map you are not far from us,I beleive you are in Fairburn?? We have a lot of airboat customers in Atlanta that come down and ride with us.Check it out you won't be disapointed.

Sniper, when Carol says you won't be disappointed ? Trust me ....... that Chattahoochee basin is some of the finest water that the good Lord ever made.

Hook up with me down there. We can hang out with two of the finest people you'll ever know, run the boats a little, and just kinda 'settle in' if you know what I mean.

Sounds Like a road trip to me and it is a lot closer than West Palm I run the Chattahoochee up here but it is all just river running no skinny water and lots of big Rock to watch out for

Ya'll keep me in mind. I'd love to make the trip to that part of Georgia. My running here on the Altamaha is mostly deep water with a lot of sand bars. Beautiful running, great fishing. A guy in my office just caught a 45lb Flathead catfish. Going to have in today for lunch.

Aw hell Wingman, why worry about a few little rocks after what you went through in New Orleans.. Wanna talk railroad switches, now THAT'S something to worry about... :D :D if an airboat ride doesn't include atleast one rock hit where the entire airboat is lifted out of the water, then it hasn't been a good ride..... :D
Me crazy? :shock:

jstultz, I'll help you get your boat together. The Dixons, Sniper, Harvey, KJ C, you and me ..... sounds like a boat ride to me. Mwood who posts on here would probably come over too, and of course anybody else that doesn't mind the tow.

It can be the first SAO Georgia run.

I'll do it Bill ...... bring Coffey too. This might just turn into a real party :D .

You guys need to be runnin those things on Laurel and Cumberland this Summer ..... put a buoy on em with a 150' rope (parachute cord works great). If you sink em, you'll find em.

Adam, I didn't forget you. I knew you'd be in if you could. Maybe you, John and I can convoy over. I figure it's close to a 4 hour tow from here.

Anyone know of any special laws? I know you need mufflers and be running with a flame arrester on your carb.. Also standard Coast Guard stuff.

I run a K&N filter on my SBC that is also CG approved as a flame arrestor. Jegs and Summit both sell them and they're stainless.
