Third Thursday Lecture – Evolution Of The Airboat
February 17 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The airboat has become an iconic symbol of the Everglades, and this presentation will trace the history of these unique watercrafts from their earliest, experimental incarnations through the modern mega-boats of today seating twenty or more thrill-seeking tourists. The many uses of these fast-moving swamp-ready vehicles will be discussed in depth, with examples ranging from family recreation to air-disaster rescues.
