Re: Where to buy Avgas on East Coast

Port Consolidated in West Palm Beach will be the cheapest. Lowest price for cash sale. Little higher for credit card.
Have not bought any in last month or so so I don't know current price.
Indiantown Airport is usually good price. Unmanned pump, credit only.

Re: Lycoming 0435

i ran 0435 for years on a 12 ft.Palm Beach hull. Mine still had large spline shaft for prop. Ran a wide blade wood prop back then around 20 years ago. My mags gave out and at the time was not able to find parts. I had no problem then staying up with the 0540 boats I hunted and ran with.

Re: Area 1 - Arthur R. Marshall NWR - Potential Hunting etc.

For gator hunting you are not running in marsh. You go in off LOX road and use the south ramps to Area 1 you only hunt canal around area on south and some west side. You can only go short way into marsh in some open areas. No airboats, only boats.

I used to have a 0435 and had the same problem. Had no oil pressure in cooler. Had it checked out and unhooked cooler line and brought engine up in rpm and oil shot out. Put a pressure gauge in cooler line to read along with other gauges and ran engine for years, never had a problem with overheating...

Re: Bob Stossel Documentary Link To Vimeo Video

It was a true honor to know him. We were board members on the Airboat and Halftrack club in Palm Beach County and had board meetings at my house. He would come early and give me pointers on my airboat and buggy that I was building at the time. Had a few meetings at his shop also.
