Seller Notes: This airboat was custom built by a machinist in McAlpin, Florida and used by him. I purchased it about a year ago from his family after it had been stored inside for an extended period. I replaced the leaking aluminum fuel tank, cleaned the fuel lines and carburetor and started the engine with no trouble. Radiator side straps were seriously rusted(not leaking) so I put a new radiator on it. The alternator was not charging so I replaced it with a rebuilt one. Then a new battery so that it cranks reliably every time. The owner/builder used a Subaru 6 cylinder engine for power. It runs exceptionally well and has sufficient horsepower to make this a thrilling boat to operate. I added automatic trim tabs to keep the bow down when running high speed. The hull is very solid and does not show any signs of being damaged.Stringers are solid as well. Has a carbon fiber three blade prop which I believe is a Sensenich that pushes the boat nicely.Fresh synthetic oil and filter.Good trailer.
 
I have owned this boat for approximately one year and since I retired have made a hobby of restoring air boats to occupy myself. This is my second one and it is repaired to my satisfaction. I have purchased another one so this one must go. It runs exceptionally well and handles easily. The builder lived in Mcalpin, Florida and built this as his personal fishing boat. He outfitted it with a six cylinder Subaru engine modified for this application. I have made all of the necessary repairs to the boat after it had been stored when he could no longer use it. It is titled in the State of Florida as a 2013 Homemade boat and the VIN/HIN matches the boat serial number. Actual age of the hull is unknown however it is exceptionally solid with no indication it has ever been damaged and the stringers are solid with no soft spots. The engine starts easily and is powerful and smooth running.If you notice the rail and screen on the bow it is there because Sturgeon are jumping on the river and you do not want one to hit you. If you are thinking about buying an airboat this is a great candidate as an entry level one. If you are happy riding in a well made powerful boat it will satisfy that class also. It is on a solid trailer and can be towed anywhere with no problem. It is light enough to tow with just about any vehicle. Again, I have repaired or replaced any weak parts and will gladly answer any questions. The front seats and dry box will remain on the boat if buy it now is used. I will be available to help with pickup with reasonable advance notice. Bid confidently for a super good boat. I can be reached through ebay. Leave a name and phone number and i will gladly call you back. Reserve is reasonable. The boat is for sale locally.  
P.S.  I looked at the bill of sale I got when I purchased the boat. Says that the brand name is Rivermaster if that makes a difference.
P.S.S,      I meant to say the VIN/HIN matches the serial number on the title. I normally do better on my ads.
