Yes, I have seen the boat up close several times. A friend of mine has done some work on it. It was on the history channel about a year ago on the program ''Big Boys Toys". They shot the footage on the kankakee river in Momence Illinois right in front of my Mothers house. Several of my friends were invoved in that segment. The boat is owned by Doug Redenius. I believe that he is president of the Ian Flemming Foundation and he is also my Mothers Mailman.
