Some more weird facts, don't remember if it has been mentioned that this actual boat was used in Miami Vice the movie. They also have a cruise ship log book mentioning that a Donzi CC was sighted approaching the ship at a high rate of speed then turned away from the boat. Drug runners use mobile landmarks like cruise ships to meet other vessels since the ships can be seen from many angles at great distances.
The weak link in the story is that the guy outran the other two boats he was crossing with even though one was having mechanical issues. I would be pissed if one of my buddies kept going when I had a problem. For all of you that don't know the Bahamas is about 50 miles off the coast of Florida so on any calm Sunday afternoon there are hundreds of boats coming back over to Florida from all the different islands.
