    Default New for me

    Gave up on finding anyone to work on my Lycoming airboat so I went out and got a good deal on an Alaska Airboat. 18' w/ Chevy 350 with whirlwind prop. Now to find a good insurance company.

    Thank you. The old (Lycoming) airboat will be sold. I don't need 2 airboats and a river boat.

    Looks like your boat was running good too. Skip built you a great looking and running boat. And good thing we went back there or that other guy may have had a very long afternoon and evening. Here is the one picture I got of your boat on the lake. Oh, and you can give BK the headset and I will get it from him later. And thanks for taking me out there and showing me what that boat will or can do.

    For a bunch of guys that can't seem to grasp that the prop goes in the water I do have to admit you have some pretty slick toys!
