    BBB - have you thought about doing a run from Ocklockonee River to Carrabelle in the airboat? Looks like it would be a cool run. Some shallow areas, but your boat should be able to easily handle it. If so, I'll be co-pilot if you go in late Sept or around Thanksgiving....:) Sucks about the Franklin County ordinance that you can't run airboats S. of 98.

    I'm not too worried about the ordinance. Gonna keep this a freshwater boat, at least until tomorrow. ;)

    Let me get some stick time in open waters and then well look at putting it in a river. Got to learn how to maneuver when you come around a bend and you only have limited stopping distance. These things are like jet skis. You let off the throttle, and you control it.

    At least I was able to drive in the carpool lane the whole way. I know somebody that's glad today is Monday. Your liver.

    Be careful around the big yellow house in Lanark. They will call the FWC in a heartbeat on an airboat. They already have!
