    "2,000 HP Outboard Inflatable ..

    Here's the latest drug runner toy from Europe.

    This thing belts 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. Of course, you'd have to be on drugs to put the throttle down on this rig. "

    I am in no way promoting drugs, I never have nor will do anything like that, just pretty crazy that people go to extremes like this to get away with it...

        yahama has a brillian engine managment system set up for running trips and quads on fountains and what not, i'm sure they might use it here, basically you have 3 throttles, the two on the outside control the verymost outside motors for tight maneuvering and docking and what not, then you have a lever that controls front, back, and neutral and the last throttle lever controls all the motors at the same time... it's quite kicka$$

                  To heck with Bass tournaments, that thing would smoke Fountains and Contenders in SKA.
