The shallower or calmer the water, the better an airboat performs. Heavy operators may find it hard to get up on plane in deep fresh water. If you find this to be a problem, start out in shallow water along the shore, then after the boat is planing, proceed out to deeper water. Even though the speeds of the airboat seem a little slow, I assure you that when you are out there on the water with nothing around you BUT water you will feel they are perfectly adequate. Also, keep in mind that YOU can go where others can’t. So have fun and always wear your PFD equipment.
This boat has been designed the best it can to be a safe and reliable product.However, should you choose to build and operate it, you do so at your own risk. We strongly recommend that you read all the instructions first before starting to make the boat, and practice good safety at all times.
