      Woo-Hoo!!

      Congrats Fozzy,
      Now you bought a boat that CAN jump and is made to do so.....you won't be dissapointed!
      Plus, you have the best mentor to teach you how to drive that hot rod!
      Lets see some pics when you get her out on the water, or snow, or grass, or gravel bars, etc....

                You already put yours away Brian??? I'm headed back out tomorrow to do some more exploring/ice breaking. Not only was I grinning from ear to ear all day but I was also secretly singing in my head ďItís a whole new worldĒ. I donít think the jet boat will get many miles next year. Thanks for all the pointers Skip, I really appreciate it. Iíll get some picís tomorrow. I might even have to change my profile pic.

                  Lots of jet boaters would convert over if they just had a chance to ride in a quality airboat. I have had jet boats and liked them, but even my old tub is a big big step up performance wise on any jet boat.

                  Brian I am surprised you are putting yours away so early, still many weeks before the river gets hard, and then you could still run the airboat to the cabin in a heated cab instead of on a snowmachine. Bud

                          If that boat turns up for sale, somebody let me know. It may be affordable. Bud

                              Fozzy,
                              I know exactly how you feel. I sold my jetboat this spring after having an airboat for one year and the jetboat sat idle....all year. You won't miss it. I wrapped mine up as I had to go to work again, not sure if I will be back before freeze up.

                              How do you like running over the beaver dams or wrapping her up to 4800 RPM's on land and cruising right along, (Love the sound of a big block running hard)?
                              As they say, when you get tired of porn, get an airboat!

                              Anybody know the story on the rolled boat, hope no one was injured. Looks like Skip has another project on his hands. (I suppose after he gets out of surgery that is!) I also noticed Skip wasn't wearing his"boating crocs" as usual.

                              Look forward to seeing some more pics, Skip rocks!
