You need some H2O, and those things would fly! I used to live down in Louisiana and sometimes when I'd be out fishing, hunters would come through in airboats like those. They would basically take a flat bottom john boat and laminate the bottom with that white plastic stuff like cutting boards are made of. Then they'd put a big V8 on it, always open headers, gawd awful loud. They would drive right up the boat ramp and park them in the car lot. Those videos brought back some fun memories. I've got one airboat, but it's just a cheap plastic thing with a single rudder and a 40 OS. It moves a lot of air though, I just bought a 3 blade prop for it today. Not sure how it will work out, but it was cheap enough for a try. Good luck with your boats, they are really nice.
