    There's a guy who is doing tours and people are very upset about all the noise. How do you feel about airboat tours? Seems like an airboat is made for marshes and we don't have much of them and will be destroyed by an airboat.

    Not a good idea. I've seen a few near our place in Pt Washington over the years. Extremely loud.

    Another "cheesy circus" to disrupt our natural environment and most important assets.
    Not no, but "HELL NO"
    DO NOT TURN SOWAL OR FREEPORT INTO A JOKE!

    Note: This is my opinion and you asked. If you don't agree or don't like my opinion tuff...
    Oh, sorry I am not and never will be PC correct. Now smile :)

    Give me one good reason why you would use an airboat instead of a regular boat? - agree - hell no!

    No air boats. We live on the river now and the last thing I want to hear or see is a freak`n airboat buzz`n by my dock.

    We took the tour last year--and I now can understand why airboats are not wanted on the bay. Too noisy...why would we want to disrupt our natural environment and most important assets?

    Not to offend, but why did you take it? Did you not know it was noisy? Thought it would be cool?
