He checked me during duck season, I was completely legal, had boaters registration, TX numbers and even my title on hand! But my hull id number must have fallen off and my boat and he asked me where it was and I told him it was an old boat and he told me to unhook it from my truck and that he was going to take it because it was stolen! I laughed and was like are you kidding me.......needless to say I got it back 3months later after duck season and it was a "mistake" on his part.
Sounds like something Brandon Minkowski would do.

dang_ol i have ran into alot of gw, but the one on conroe, is the only one i got a ticket from, had every thing legal but my front light, was coming in before dark, when he stoped me he checked every thing, looked all though the boat, wasn't fishing or hunting, just riding, when he finally was about to let me go he asked where my front light was, told him i was coming in before it got to late, but he stoped me, he wrote me a ticket, for it, and it was his fault, i would have been at my moms house way before it even got late if it was not for him, the house was like 200 foot down the bank. i was upset, i think he seen i did not have it and held me there to give the ticket.

W8kski I know over in Florida, their's is 90 db at 50 ft. That's not that hard to comply with when you are courteous around homes, boat docks etc. We just need to know what the distance is here.

bowfishrp W8kski you are right but they will NOT say what the distance is on the DB reading. If I stand on the front deck of my boat and open my fan up all the way I am right at 98db....from about 15 ft away...and that is with a composite prop. I have not measured it from further away yet.

Dave aka Regulator I think a couple hundred of us should have an airboat meet / show / ride up on conroe. just all show up on the same day hang out and look like were up to something. Not make any noise and fish with cane poles just to anoy folks with the sight of our boats.

Bet they wouldn't even notice us.

W8kski This has been a law for a long time in Florida for airboats. Like one guy said, it is all about the distance that they are measuring the db's from. 90 db's is alout louder than many are saying on here. In Florida it's easy for an airbout to be under 90 db's according to the distance that they are measuring it at. I don't see how a fan boat motor would produce enough noise to break the 90 db barrier at a distance. Those of you that have them need to convert to carbon props and get rid of the noisy wooden ones to cut down on the noise. Having a db tester and knowing the distance that it is to be measured at would be the answer. Just my 2 cents.

bowfishrp They are not all bad and you know it.

The Texas game wardens I have talked to said that it is NOT illegal to run an airboat on Lake Conroe. It is the federal game wardens that complain about airboats.
