    Last Saturday I was watching Americas Most Wanted. Normally I hate the show but they were doing a thing on US Customs and their boats. They showed footage of an actual chase. They were chasing a guy in a deep v with outboards. The customs guys must have gotten bored or their shift was coming to and end. They ended the chase by running their bow into and up on the stern of the drug runners boat, taking out the engines. They did this at 50 or 60 MPH. Now that takes balls.

    Bullet holes

    For some reason ..they dont want some of the gov. vessels being used again ..I looked at what I think was an 38 apache, used by the navy seals as a landing craft , supposedly saw panama etc.. Still had machine gun mounts on it ..Anyway they cut a hole in the bottom just forward of the transom about 2 feet square, probably with a chainsaw.. It was a sad thing to see

    I think those boats were used by either the Hatfield's or McCoy's. Hell, all boats look like that in WV,

    For those that are curious and or feeling really ambitious, I will try to find the # to the salvage yard and post it. I think it was located in Bluefeild West VA. The same exit when you see the first West VA titty Bar on left. We past this exit and the boats are on the right hand side of the road, down in a little valley beside a pond. We had to turn around and go back to the exit to get to them. My friend that was with me took a pitchure of their sign with the # on it. If anyone goes after business hrs as we did, watch out for all of the dogs. There are about 5 or 6 in pens and chains nearby. But theres this big rotty on a chain, and it looked a little rusty!
