Re: LOOKING FOR A WATER CHECK IN THE MICCOSUKEE RES

Any word on water levels in the rez? Gauges in 3A have been looking good but no gauges in rez so I'm not sure how the water's holding in there from the rains we had last week and weekend. Planning a father's day weekend trip to camp. Anyone going this weekend please give a report!

Re: LOOKING FOR A WATER CHECK IN THE MICCOSUKEE RES

I've always heard the gauntlet referred to as the ridge, so yes.

We had a guy go to camp this weekend. Was plenty of water in the rez but the ridge is still dry.

Re: AIRBOAT RETRACTABLE BIMINI TOP

Well I'm back on this. I never did it with my old boat but I think I'm going to give it a try with the new one. That last post with the picture is a good looking setup however it doesn't look like it could go back against the cage. Looks like it would interfere with the flag. I have a flag and vhf r...

Re: LOOKING FOR A WATER CHECK IN THE MICCOSUKEE RES

Got one yesterday that said if you're just riding it's fine, but if you're hauling any weight, it'll be rough. Sounds pretty skinny, but I like it like that.

Kissimmee Lodging

We go turkey hunting in Kissimmee with our families every spring and stay at an AirBnb at Camp Mack. Well, we drug our feet this year on getting our place and someone has it the only weekend we can go. I've never stayed anywhere else but this house, so I'm not real familiar with some other lodging o...

Re: GPS

I'd like to just use my cellphone or a tablet. I'm having trouble with where to mount mine though where I can see it. Thought of doing a large chart plotter but being that my boat is front driver, it's not really feasible. MotionX is for IPhone, anyone know of any good nav apps for Android?

Airboat Docking Solutions

Hey guys, I've got a place where I cannot pull up on the hill to keep the boat (too rocky). I keep the boat at a dock, but docking an airboat sucks and a dock beats the crap out of the cage and the sides of the boat, especially in rough weather. I've seen a couple of boats around me that are using s...

Exhaust System Corrosion

How do you guys, especially ones that run the salt water, eliminate exhaust system corrosion. I have 2 month old headers, flex pipe and mufflers that are already starting to show corrosion. Any tips? I wash boat after every use and wash it with Salt Terminator after every use in salt water. Am I mis...

Re: Kissimmee River

I don't see enough marsh worth running in the areas you're describing on Google Earth. Anyone ever rode this area? It's only about an hour from me but I'm always interested in new places to ride.

Went on a guided fishing trip with a guy that had the SIMRAD with the Google Earth overlay. That thing was awesome. It even had the oyster bars highlighted.

Well the Garmin 76 series goes from 8 inch screen to a 26in screen not sure what size you're looking for then When I searched online the only one that came up was very small. I'll check again thanks.

Too small of a plotter for me. I'm looking for something 6" or bigger in terms of the screen.

Chart Plotter

Going to put one on the new boat and was wondering if anyone had any input on these? I'm staying with the side mounted instrument panel so I can't go too big, but I do want to go big enough to be able to see it when I'm driving. Any ideas? Also if you have any pics of your mounts on those side instr...

Re: Running in salt water

Where are you guys running in salt water with airboats? Every place I’ve been in my skiff I would never take my airboat. Many idle zones with huge wake from aholes driving around Pine Island Bay, then north, as far as Fish Creek and Haulover, which is just south of Chaz. Must be more than 1 Fish Cr...

Re: LOOKING FOR A WATER CHECK IN THE MICCOSUKEE RES

The gauges are all still reading at or slightly below ground level. Talked with someone who went out 2 weeks ago in their buggy on the north end, and said it was so dry it was dusty :o . We need it to keep raining like it has been for another couple of weeks and we should be good to go.

At one time there was a link to a hazards map on here. Would be a good place to put some coordinates on it so everyone could store them in their GPS.
