Okay back to the subject, Im glad to see there's someone else out there that's just as bored as me!!!

One of the first jobs Charles was given was to design and produce graphics for a boat-race scene that would open the movie.

For the "Mojo," the boat driven by the movie's lead characters Sonny Crockett and Richard Tubbs, he had to come up with round after round of designs-around 200 in all-until Mann decided on the final version: a white boat with a yellow name and a black outline around it. Charles utilized his own Roland Soljet Pro II SC-545EX printer/cutter, which he brought from Los Angeles, for printing the Mojo graphics. Using the printer in conjunction with Roland Eco-Sol inks, he output onto Roland Premium Cast Vinyl.

A month before Mann and his film crew were set to shoot their own boat race in Miami, however, they learned of a real boat race about to take place there. Mann decided he wanted to capture footage of this actual race and integrate it into the film-cutting scenes from this race into the on-set close-ups they would film later. Mann spotted a boat that looked similar to the one they were creating, and simply asked the boat's owner to switch out his boat's graphics with the Mojo graphics that Charles had created.







As it turned out, Charles had to design graphics for a second boat as well: A week following the filming of the real boat race, the movie crew got word that a boat they had intended to borrow called "Lightening Jack's"-which had been racing alongside the Mojo boat in the actual race footage-had been in a wreck and was damaged.

I rented the Vice movie. Turned it off 3/4ths of the way through.

What a waste of 99 cents.

The "L" or LIMA flag means stop instantly while underway. Flown in port it means quarintine.

Personally, I think the colour scheme on Mojo is pretty lame considering the blank canvas they had to work with. . .

Can anyone who sat through the whole move explain why the bow lights are reversed on one of the Donzi ZR’s?

I agree 100%! That was about the lamest -looking boat in the fleet for sure. Fortunately it wasn't on camera very long. Too bad some dumb dingus spent so many hours thinking up something that sucked.
