Noisy!

Unlike the boat I posted yesterday, today's boat is nowhere near as quiet a ride.

We saw several air boats last week in Florida. I know they are a very popular type of boat in that region of the country. I'm sorry, but I just can't imagine going for a boat ride and having to wear hearing protection. I'd estimate these guys were a mile away when we first heard them, long before they came into view on the other side of Lake Washington.

We had to check out Lake Washington since we also have a Lake Washington in Seattle! Just don't ask me about our trip down Seattle St.

Good photo.
We don't have airboats here - only airplanes.

Have a nice day, Boonie

I'm with ya on these boats! Or rather OFF of them. Sort of cancels out the purpose of a boat ride IMHO (but I hope I don't get drummed out of the state for saying so, they are VERY popular.
