Hurricane Airboat Restoration. Coming Soon!

Mission

The intent of this restoration is to take this civilianized 1970's Hurricane Aircat Airboat (photo above) and modify it as it would have appeared during the Vietnam War (photo below). Once restored I plan to organize a reenactment group of local history buffs and collectors to take the boat on "airsoft" patrols.

Strategy

In July 2009 I plan to finalize the sale and transport of this classic airboat from Florida to my home in Georgia so I can begin restorations.

Restoration

Periodically I will post updates here so you can follow along with the progress. In 2012 I plan to build a 1/35th scale Hurricane Aircat for AFV Club to make into an exciting model kit. See my progress here!
