What do you think of my new boat?

23 posts in this topic

It'll be mostly used for getting from one panfish hole to the next. I don't like to waste time.

With all those blades turning it should have pretty good hole shot.

I think it would be fun to put the 4 on the left in reverse and the 4 on the right going forward.

That would be a heck of a ride.

I think the whole box across transom is the fuel tank. Can you imagine go and prime all the 8 primer bulbs, what a pain....

I can see somebody asking:

"I have a problem with a fuel line, number 5 from left doesn't stay hard as much as 1,3,4,6,and 7, while 2 and 8 are half way, what should I do ? "

" I have cavitation on my # 3,4, and 6 props, boat doesn't plane as it used to, what should I do ??"

"How do I winterize my boat ?"

"How can I get more power out of my outboards, if I change jetting will I get 300hp each ?"

"I have a problem with my boat, it doesn't load up well on trailer, it's always crooked, should I get some guide-ons ?"

Actually, I think it's a boat used somewhere in Europe to chase down drug boats. Pretty crazy though.

Oh my, I wonder what that thing is used for. Can you imagine the maintenance? "Honey, I'm going out to fog the cylinders, change the gear lube, and flush the lower unit. Have a good weekend."

The thing would probably flip over if you gunned it.

I knew i had seen this impressive setup somewhere so i checked my email folders and found a couple more pics and the story behind the rig.

In 2004, Richard Davison, managing director of Crompton Marine, and his girlfriend, Ellen George, were arrested after Spanish authorities conducting anti-drug smuggling operations seized a number of boats sold by their company and reported them to British customs officials. The two were suspected of using Crompton Marine as a front for supplying high-speed inflatable boats to illegal drug merchants, advertising them as "high-speed, uncatchable craft that have a low radar signature."

After the couple's arrest, a third party, Ian Rush, allegedly carried on their underground boat trade under the name Nautexco Marine and was also arrested. Evidence presented during Rush's 2007 trial indicated that Davison and George (and later, Rush) were making secret deals for boats like the one pictured above: craft between 30 ft. and 60 ft. long, costing as much as £350,000 ($680,000 US), and featuring up to eight 250-horsepower engines (with a total fuel storage capacity of 15,000 litres) that enabled them to outrun pursuers at speeds up 60 knots (70 mph). The craft were designed with low profiles (to avoid radar detection) and were painted grey or black to make them difficult to spot on the water. Crompton (and Nautexco) Marine's primary customers were said to be smugglers who used the craft for transporting drugs and other contraband between north Africa and southern Spain.

I have been looking at getting this same boat. Just not sure if it will be allowed on our local "No Wake" lake.
