Pary Drain Demostration Spraying (10 Acres)
Equipment: Airboat, Argo, and Backpack Sprayers
Notes:  1.  Airboat could not be used because of canal steepness and type of trailer coupled with airboat's low transom caused water to wash over into the craft while on the trailer.  2.  Immediately the Argo took on water most likely due to an axle seal failure; the material pump failed and the tank outlet fitting to the filter broke. 3.  The entire 10 acres was done by hand with backpack sprayers.
