Rode the marsh yesterday. Saw 5 A/C boats stuck. A/C boats need to be careful. Didn't see any car motor boats stuck.

Ish, were were there Saturday, all 5 boats with us were AC powered. We ran all over the marsh with no issues. It's been much higher in the past, but there was plenty of water this past weekend.

Seen another 10 A/C boats shaking rudders in the marsh. Seen 1 A/C boat get stuck at the Cypress ramp. Seen another A/C boat getting towed by a car motor. A/C boats need to be careful next weekend at the Freedom Ride. The water will be lower. A/C boats need to buddy up with a car motor boat so they can make it back to the ramp.

Seen 1 guy that owned an A/C boat complaining that he had to spend $4.50 per gallon for Av Gas and had to drive 20 miles out of his way to get it. Seen another A/C boat smoking so bad that it killed all the mosquitoes in the marsh. I had to help out 4 A/C boats by shaking their rakes to get them unstuck. Saw 1 A/C boat get stuck going down Obama Ridge. Kissimmee is a little hard for A/C boats right now. Just remember that A/C boats can always ask car motor boats for help next weekend.

For you newbies make it out to freedom ride you’ll see all the boats that’s can’t run dry sitting by the low side of ridge and in the shallows at miles point! Sure there will be plenty of dumb a$&’s just like last year.

Ish no worries A/C boats will be in the marsh and under the trees. CM boats will be on the lake edge. But yes please be safe its a fun event. And this will help you identify who owns what kind of boat :lol:

Kwan can you post up the link for the water down there? I have never been on the Kissimmee chain, is there any water in the marsh? I think with all the rain there may very well be.

Camp Mac will be an absolute shit show. I would suggest grape hammock or Coleman Landing
