One Sunday afternoon Raymond decided to take his family for an outing on his home made wooden airboat.  Just when they were getting ready to take off on their adventure another family of tourist traveling on the Famous Tamiami Trail (HWY 41) stopped and asked Raymond if “they could get a ride on that thing”.  Working as a mechanic by day, and frog & alligator hunter by night, Raymond, saved enough money to buy a bit of swampland in Ochopee, just off of U.S. 41, and the rest is history.
