Don't give up entirely. You might try asking for their distributor and see whether they have provisions for you. FWIW, I could see them having a tougher time disbursing into a drum rather than pumping straight into a boat. Find a smaller airport on that list and try looking up your local experimental airplane group.

Might not have as many in VA, but I wonder what airboaters use and how do they get it?

thanks, i'll check into the local airplane groups. no sense of taking the boat there if it only holds 22 gallons.

ZIMM dont give up just pull up to airport with a few steel barrels in your truck and as long as they know its not going in a car .. We pulled up with the Lambo and filled it and the chick had a chit fit that they would lose there license or some crap but we paid the owner in crisp hundreds and he smiled and said the boat is no problem but fill barrels for the car if someone takes a pic hes phucked ..... its a small puddle jumper airport not a huge hub like ohare ...
and just a lil hint CASH & no reciept seems to work for some reason
