Airboat Build

Post by KadeSTX » Wed Feb 12, 2020 12:50 pm

What's up everybody. My dad and I are starting from scratch. No hull, no motor, nothing. I’m sure there will be plenty of mistakes and a few cuss words but I couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to build something with my dad. Please feel free to give any advice..


Also, you can follow the build on his YouTube page. Link below.
