Airboat


I took this photo at one of the boat landings on Lake Jackson not far from my house. I used to have a lot of fun around airboats when I was a kid, until one time I saw a snake in the boat and that was the end of that (for me anyway).

Snake was hitching a ride, eh? :-)

Hello, great shot! I have heard a few airboats while in Florida and they are really loud. I would not want a snake on a boat with me. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

I have never been on one because of my fear of water and all things that float, now I can add snake in boat to my list of fears. LOL

It looks rather fragile to sit so high up there.

I've never ridden on an airboat although I used to know a guy who built them. I think they'd be a lot of fun, especially in the Everglades. But these days, I'd rather use what energy I have left to do other things, like play golf. :) I like the photo a lot - the boat is really churning up the water!

We took a fun ride in one and it really was exhilarating... but if there was a snake anywhere near, I'd be out of there!

I've seen these on TV or in a movie but, I've never seen one in person. (The snake would have done it for me too!)

Quite a way to get around.

Amazing sky and lovely reflections. Fortunately we don't have many snakes in our area :)

Oh, yes, airboats are great fun. I often take visitors on tours on either airboats or kayaks.
