pipedog, you built yourself a helluva boat right there. Always glad to see success when it comes to a new build.

Almost 80,000 views on this thread. I'm sure this thread has helped others with their builds too, so thanks for that.

And I am in to that "social distancing airboat style" stuff too...even when there ain't no damn chinese virus bugs blowing around town :) .

Lurked this forum off and on for years. Found this thread today and spent all my free time reading thru it and watching all the vids. Had to register an account just to thank you for all the info and inspiration. Hoping to get into my first airboat soon, I really want to raise my 3 kids to love and respect the heritage. :florida:

Incredible boat you built.

Godspeed :salute:
