NO! I have GatorGlide on the bottom! I have never been stuck in anything I could not get out of. I have a 4500lbs winch and have never used it. Getcha some! :D

Son, hunting partner and dog got lost navigating river in WMA in Arkansas one year. Son had to call it at dusk as they were running out of fule that they would have to spend the night in the boat. Pretty dangerous situation to be in as it was below freezing. They had cold weather gear with waders and they were dry so the night they were not in real danger but they were in for a chilly night. What helped was they were able to sleep on the fast grass of the blind and cover themselves with it too. And they took turns snuggling next to Rex, the lab. They also had a propane stove they could use if things go desperately cold but that never happened. From that experience, now those two always bring a duffle bag with them when they hunt which they call the Arkansas Survival Kit. It consissts of more warm clothing , a change of clothing if they get wet, an epirb, and other stuff to suvive in the cold or at night.

Extra dry clothes has saved me once before in 28 degree weather broke down in an inboard in the middle of the marsh back before cell phones worked everywhere. It rained hard then got really cold. We broke down and got soaked trying to work on the motor. Took some extra clothes and a tarp and stayed underneath it until help came look for us. I was grateful to store extra gear that day.

Ditch box is the first thing that goes in the airboat before I drive off in it. Lightweight neoprene waders are the second. Food, water, towel, rain gear, space blanket, tools, ropes, fire starter, matches, mosquito repellent, first aid kit, throw cushion, large plastic garbage bags...there’s probably some other things in there....but, if I gotta spend the night in the middle of nowhere or walk out...either way, I’m prepared.
