When Boats Meet the Air

Air Boats

With the water here solid as a rock I thought it was time to go into air-boats. Air-boats normally have a Jon Boat style flat hull with a Fan drive mounted on the rear. With this drive they do not need much water to run on. Ponds and wet grass to light snow powder will get you a fun time and the fan drive will give a great roost. Air-boats turn by rudders moving the air from the fan skidding the hull sideways like pulling donuts with a car back first. These are not speed demons, they are hooligans on water.

You can get “air-boats” that are more plane than Boat. These are a ground effect craft.
