What size and what are looking to do with it?
There are a lot of great builders.
That might help narrow it down.
But in general War Daddy=Great boat
You can ignore the facts but you CAN NOT ignore the consequences you get from ignoring the facts!

If you have had a dozen, it doesn't sound like you have had them long enough to have problems. Also sounds like you weren't happy with them.

Gary that's funny. Slow ride has either worked on or built a good portion of the boats in the southern area. Just cuz he trades them out and builds a new one every year means there not good?? I would like to see you pull up next one. I'm sure it would blow your doors off. Btw what fancy boat are you running?

Not trying to start anything,just sounded funny.Twelve boats in 35 years is one every 2.9 years and thats only the war daddy brand. From the picture it looks like you have got it down. I'm sure you can blow the doors off my boat anytime you want. Not really into racing and going fast. Been airboating over 40 years. Now all I want to do is go out at night when things are quiet and stick some frogs. Sorry if I stepped on your toes.
