    Default New boat

    I picked up a ultralight airboat at a auction last weekend. It was built by Alaska airboats in the valley. It is powered with a 582 rotax. It runs about 40 mph with 2 guys in it.
    I am surprised how well it goes with a 55hp motor. I have a new 65hp blue head rotax I think I will put in it.
    I am thinking it should be a good hunting rig. It is burning 2-3 gal. A hr.

    I picked it up at the hicks bros auction. It is in pretty good shape. I am will have it in the water as soon as the rivers drop some.

    Looks alot like the lil airboat I recently sold. Before I got it they swapped it over to a 350 chevy motor.
    Nice looking ride.
