    Why not just ask the questions on the open forum sort of the whole point of this place.

    Never heard one? I use one more days than not some months, and I hate 'em.

    I've never been around one. I can imagine they are noisy like any other motorized craft.

    Big engines with unbaffled exhaust and can go places where birds could otherwise still find refuge from the mud motor crowds.

    Randy, I'm strictly a user, rather than owner, and may or may not be able to answer some questions.

    We need something to take fuel to elevated Platforms in areas that are flooded . a mud motor is a no-go due to the debris and running higher ground. was wondering if an airboat with hundred gallons of fuel aboard would work.
    if so what size would I need and then the other special equipment I would need on board
