The History channel H2 episode,Modern Marvels, visited our Mark’s Airboats site to film the actual construction of an airboat! Their time lapsed version of this was aired on H2 History Channel, episode title Swamp Tech. The crew spent several days filming the building and rigging of an airboat. They spent time in the marsh areas around Franklin and then ventured to the work site of the largest airboat built by Mark’s Airboats. The 45′ long, 4 engine massive airboat was filmed working in South Louisiana. Watch for another run of this program on H2 History Channel. It was exciting to be part of this project and the video segment will allow you to witness the beauty of these magnificent machines.
