Brian Krug/ Quick Slick is now the owner. You can reach him at 863-581-9710. Hopefully by the end of this year I will have a new boat built with an OX box behind it.

I think Dan is pretty much out of airboats for now.

I almost bought one in Oct but could not get it fast enough to keep up with my fall hunting so I bought a Balistic instead. I am sure they are both good, I'm happy with the balistic 2.7 but don't have many hours on it yet. Hope Oxbox does well, they seem like a good product to me, and well tested so far. Bud

Did you order a show finish or is that box just machined?

Just wanted to let everyone know that I can't speak highly enough about Brian Krug, Ox Drive Reductions. When Brian was looking at buying the business he noticed a deal I had made with Dan that involved a Stinger I sent to him as down payment on a new Ox Drive that Dan never produced. Brian assured me he would honor the deal if he bought the business. I kinda figured I had just lost that drive, with it getting stuck in the middle of the business sale. Well, I called Brian earlier this week to check on things and I had a brand new Ox Drive delivered today. Absolutely the most beautiful gear reduction I have ever seen. If Brian continues to handle his business with the integrity I have seen from him I have no doubt it will be successful. I can't say I recommend the drive yet but I can definitely recommend the company. Thanks Brian.

Are you using this drive or going with a belt? What ratio is it?
