It is the float plan for the people smugglers.

They leave from Haiti, and they land in Jupiter Florida.

More than you know. Spent the weekend at the Orlando boat show in a booth next to the Border cops. You should hear the stories.

I've just been looking into this whole documentation thing, and I'd agree with Sydwayz, I'm sure its just temporary, to keep the cops off ass.

That KILLS me to see that!!

Wal-Mart john-boat fenders and yellow poly line from Home Depot.

Unbelievable; and we have ALL seen it hanging off of a $300K boat!!

He spent all that money on that boat with triple and bravos.....it should have twin motors with sixes and would have been a nicer piece.....IMO

Ditto,
I never understood low hp triple's w/ bravos. Increase pasasitic drag from a 3rd drive, increase weight from a 3rd engine. twin 700 -850's and surface drives is by far a much better set up.

The builders who are still doing triples are stuck in the nineties. Like all the boats in the eighties with arch's. The latest fad the horizontal trim tab.
