Hi Coenharbour:

I think I saw something on the hullside saying 'Manatee Preservation Society'.


( Kidding! )

I have no idea... good 'Trivia Photo Round' candidate, eh?

LOL

That's absolutely insane. Where did you find this picture Loren? Did you take it or did you stumble on it over the internet?

Loren,

Shouldn't it be called 'Slice & Dice' as that is what would happen to anything in its way!!

The throttle levers must go from 1 side of the cab to the other!

How fast is that vessel? 200 knots? LOL, just kidding. What do you need with 8 outboards?

Lots of props doesn't equate to speed, but the torque would be off-the-chart.

I am a self professed "student of boats". I'm always looking, reading, pointing and clicking. I just love what I do. The best part is- people pay me to do what I enjoy. It doesn't get any better!
