Default finaly got a airboat!!!

well daily i have been searching the classifieds for a airboat. finaly found one i was interested in wednesday morn. called the guy and didnt get him. we played phone tag until thursday morning. the boat was just what i was wanting. after some bickering on price and a few more calls i was on a improptou road trip to martinsville arkansas. got down there at 7pm last night. the boat was all he said it was and more. it is a 18x8 redriver boat with 30 in sides up front and 34 in back. the bottom is 80 in!!! it has 3/8 polmer on the bottom and sides. it has front steering and a light rail, 3 up top seating, walkarounds around the side of the boat, fancage and radiator. no motor, reduction, or prop. It will be awhile before i can get it going but i now have a great platform to build off of!!I am gona try to send out some pics so maybee somebody can post them up for me!!

Congrats Slim, but asI see gasoline has gone to $3.39/gal this morning, I can't help but thinkthat craft isgoing to get it's best mpg in its present state. Can't wait to see it up and running and I hear the fish on the flats are already heading for deeper water.

Wowzer

Your middle name Herc,LMAO I hope that is all aluminum and even at that, it's got to be real heavy. Ist time seeing one,I always thought they were a smaller boat. I have to agree with Robow on the gas prices after you get to the other side of the lake you'll probably be looking for a marina HUH! . Congrats on a great looking boat, don't mind the jabbering, I'm jealous [8D]
Rocky
PS and to thing gas up here is at $4.32 a gallon
