Airboats coming to the GatorFest this coming weekend

Post by kwowens1963 » Wed Sep 11, 2013 12:20 pm

Wrench69 and myself are coming to Anahuac Saturday morn to ride and slide, how many other SA airboaters are going to be there? Where is a good meeting place for us all to hook up and ride? We will be launching at the Goo hole ramp on old and lost river road

It don't look like my boat will be ready in time...I'm waiting on poly, and still have to get the rigging put back together.

I was looking forward to meeting y'all, and still may just come up to hang...if spectators are allowed.

Lucked out this year and will be hunting a friends ranch in the double bayou/ Anahuac area. Don't need the boat to hunt but was thinking about bringing it down to go to the party. I have a few questions. Where is the best place to launch? Can you get to the party via boat? Look forward to meeting some fellow airboaters. I attached a pic of my ride. Holler at me if you see me. Thanks for any info.

I'm trying to make it out there Saturday. About to make it's maiden voyage this evening! Started three weeks ago putting poly on, then built a motor, fabbed it up, and wiring it today.
