Hello Greg,
I don't know if you are still looking for a 70's Aircat Airboat, I have one, missing motor and propeller(all the rest is complete).

I purchased it from the Canadian Federal Gov., it was used by the federal naturel resources during the 70's and 80's. It originally had a Lycoming engine. I have had it for about ten years always wanting to finish it. But due to expenses and disability I never did complete it.

I would be willing to take some pictures if you are interested. I would want $2000 US$ plus shipping costs.

I have never put it up for sale but many different people were very interested in it. I have chosen to offer it to you, they are rare to find and I believe, as you are current or retired military, that the airboat would look nice as a rebuilt military version made from a civic duty boat.

I live in southeastern Manitoba, Canada.

I look forward to your response.

Thank you for your time and considerations. Marc Lavergne

2 at USMC Quantico, but I think they are more modern hovercraft versions..being deacqusitioned by the museum looking for a home.
That means anyone with the "account" to get them could, and pick them up...primarily legit museums desired...
Just saying.
Along with a T-62, French Pateux 20mm, German 75 recoiless, Japanese 75mm cannon from memory.
