If you are in the valley, check out the guy around the corner from Fred Meyers on the Palmer-Wasilla. He is next to the old Wet Willys car wash. 15 gall clear poly barrels for $20. Also 20 or 25 gall for slightly more.
My boat is 16', 350 carb, 6 blade carbon, up and down steering, 78 hours on motor...and I need to learn how to run it effectively and efficently....I tried it out on the Knik and I will have to learn to use the trim tabs to my advantage...boy, I think an airboat is the way to go for me...
I would like to replace the trailer axle with a tandem axle set up, but that might have to wait for more money to be saved up...LOL. I might even paint it, but the wife says she likes it the way it is...
I am trying to attach a picture..we will see if it works.
Lots of water flowing in it now...Really hair raising earlier in the season, We turned around and went up into the canyon...Its alot more scary going around those rollers in an airboat than a jet boat.
Nope not just you ....that was my main preference when I was looking at boats . I put lower steering for the wife and when it was raining . We ran down to Montana creek today man did the wind pick up running 3800 rpms and was not going anywhere , Wish I would have brought the gun seen a couple of nice bears on an island .
