True, true, but I think we should vote an exception for them based on this info alone:

"The new Magnum 80' is equipped with twin 2400 HP MTU diesels coupled to Arneson surface drives for a top speed of about 60 MPH"

That's hardcore.

When I talked to Craig Barrie in Jacksonville he said they are still doing Dragon's for overseas customers.
