Airboat at rest
Airboats, which are flat craft powered by an aircraft engine in the rear, are used throughout Florida, especially in the Everglades in the south, but also in swampy areas and places like the flats of Cedar Key. They ride high and skim across water and grass without getting hung up as would a regular boat.
They are very loud! This one looks relatively new and was located in the yard of one of our neighbors.
