I have an innercom system from Racing Electronics that works pretty good. Is uses a small amp box with a 9 volt battery, that your head phones plug into. It is push to talk. When you want to talk to your buddy, just push the button. It is set up for a scanner, but I use my phone and plug it into the 1/8 jack and we listen to the IPOD music, and then just push to talk, it mutes the music. You can hear fine and you get about 12 hours of music listening/and moderate talking. Everything I needed came in the box, it was about $300.00 total cost about a year ago, including 2 headsets with mic, the amp box, and a cord to plug into my Phone/IPOD.

If you talk to Racing Electronics and tell them it is for an Airboat, you can have them delete the scanner and get the price near the $300.00

Another option is a setup by Simpson that uses Family Radio's and head sets. In that setup, you are not wired to the boat, and can walk around and still have the communication. Perhaps someone with that set up will chime in.

Here is the link to the Racing Electronics Website - this one includes the scanner that you won't need.

kpfishin,
I went to the old trusty E-Bay and bought 4 recently used nascar owned racing electronic headsets, 3 small motorola talk about radios and then went to Hot Rogers Electronics (also on E-Bay) and ordered three cables with volume contol and push to talk buttons on them. My total cost was about $220 and with the exception of WOT we can talk pretty much anytime. The thing I like about this set up is anybody can talk, boat to boat while running even boat to car while someone is backing the trailer in.

I had a PirateCom set up on my boat and removed it. Too much engine feedback whine in it. also just hated to be attached to the boat, limited my ability to look around some, since the cables come from the console lower than the seat. Only suggestion is that the wire should come from higher location like in the helicopters that I fly. But thats difficult on an airboat.

Get in touch with Trever Luce from Piratecom. They have new wireless setups that we've tested standing about 8 feet back directly in the prop wash and could communicate clearly without yelling into the mic. I was very impressed and didn't experience any engine feedback or cross communication. Great setup but a little pricey.
