Thread: First Trip of The Year

  1. #1

    Default First Trip of The Year

    I finally got my new (well new to me) airboat on the water today. The launch was froze with just over an inch of ice, but it was nothing a good whacking with a paddle couldn't fix. The run went well. We ran some water and ice and only managed to break a windshield.

    One thing to watch on Leonards older boats is when you do your Pre-run safety check climb up and look and the weld on the brackets on the top of the rudder where they connect to the cage.

    MAN it does not take much to amuse you guys ..I mean come on watching a dog S**T

    Pre-safety check, whats that? Just playing. I've been checking those welds for the past month, can never be too safe.

    About the dog thing. Well, it was a long winter and we were comparing the longitudinal angle of the turd to the horizontal plane and then referencing the tracks as indication of which direction a predator was walking. We really believe we have made a tracking break through.
