Airboat

Airboat is an object in Season Two of the Showtime series DEXTER, and also in real life.

Also known as a fanboat, planeboat, swamp boat, or bayou boat, it is a watercraft commonly used for fishing, bowfishing, hunting, and ecotourism. The design also makes it ideal for flood and ice rescue operations.

Description[]

An airboat a flat-bottomed watercraft propelled by an aircraft-type propeller and powered by either an aircraft or automotive engine. There are no operating parts below the waterline which allows for easy navigation through shallow swamps and marshes; in canals, rivers, and lakes; and in icy areas. The engine and propeller of an airboat are enclosed in a protective metal cage to help prevent objects, such as tree limbs, branches, clothing, beverage containers, passengers, or wildlife, from coming into contact with the whirling propeller.

Airboat

Esteban and Teo Famosa on airboat

An airboat approaches the Cabin in the Everglades. Aboard are the Famosa brothers who are on their way to pick up a large amount of cocaine from the cabin. James Doakes, having just escaped from Dexter Morgan’s makeshift prison, hears the airboat and frantically waves from shore to catch their attention. The brothers stop the airboat but, as soon as Doakes identifies himself as a police officer, they knock him unconscious. Doakes is then forced to carry the cocaine to the airboat.

Airboat Trivia[]

  • Airboats are prone to capsizing and sinking because they are top-heavy, unstable, and extremely shallow-draft. This makes them especially dangerous on the open sea or in rough or stormy conditions. Also, rotor wash from low-flying helicopters can push, capsize, or blow airboats into buildings, utility poles, and bridge pilings.
