Why is it slow running just cause there isn't much water?I will be out there with two other mud boats Saturday but It will be pretty crowded there is some room but all depends on how far you go out I run for about 45 mins out before we set up so we get out pretty far it pretty slow running once you get out of the main canal is why it's takes so long but I am running a new boat this year so I will see how it does compared to last year
Yes, Pintail is a prop eating, boat pushing / pulling, pain in the a$$ place to get a mud boat out in unless your boat floats and goes well in just a couple inches of water when your not having to drag it across sand bars!Why is it slow running just cause there isn't much water?
I've crashed a boat once as a teen, it is no fun to go flying 15 feet through the air and landing against an immovable object. You are so unprotected in a boat crash that it isn't even funny.I have said it before and I will say it again,,
If you insist on hunting the pintail flats area in a mudboat, PLEASE be extra careful. The channel that heads out south is extremely dangerous and is technically considered an "airboat" flow.
The flow is narrow and has many technical turns and curves in it with very limited area to park a boat without being in the way of other traffic traveling the canal.
Imagine if you will, coming around a sharp turn and meeting an airboat head on. It has and probably will continue to happen and its only a matter of time until someone gets seriously injured there.
