Not exactly a great comparison "boatwise", but this reminds me of the old warehouse oversea's that houses the Sultan of Brunei's old Cigarettes.

Bud and I talked about those boats at the Lauderdale Show and he said they're still over there locked in a warehouse. Stumbling on that place with the possiblitly of coming home with one, or all of them would be a dream!

Nice Find!!
I wish I had the time now,there in a storage place were my dad keeps his motor home,Ive been keeping a eye on them,The lady at the storage place said if she hears from them she would ask if they want to sell.Thats been 2 years. The Dr. that owned them died and there in a estate,She said they pay every month on time.Hopefully I get first dibs on them,but they may think there worth a bunch,the boats would have to gutted and start from scratch.

You wouldn't believe the security system in this place,cameras and Mic's . Her office must have 6 monitors with multiple cameras on each monitor.Its next to a real bad neighborhood.

Dock Ive got enough projects this winter

Now that is a cool find!

I've seen a lot of boats, but not these. Anyone wanna venture a guess on how they would ride, handle and how fast they would go?

I wonder when and if they would pack air and lift. With that much area under it once it lifted whoa baby!
