My new boat...

Just got this one in my email... When operated in Belize, this 2000 HP vessel sure would reduce the boat traveling time to Belize City!
This thing used to zoom across the English channel 3 times per week and was just a blur on the radar of the British Coast Guard.
They were so astonished by the speed of the unknown craft, they brought in a special high speed helicopter to chase it. Drugs were found on board.

Peter, before Frank and I came to SP the last time we had stopped off at the Miami boat show first. There were several boats configuered that same way. I think the most motors we saw was 5 and the middle three were set lower than the outside ones.

Makes sense if you look at the profile of a RIB.

If the boat were to stop in heavy seas those inner engines would be swamped, so it's a configuration suitable only when moving.
