The one that got Katrina'ed was attempted to be repurchased by NorTech to keep it off the market. I wonder if they'll do the same?

The 40" MTI in the video is a new copy of "Speedracer" with Merc 700's in it. Graphix is removable, orginal Speedracer is paint.
More video of it http://www.tv2.no/nyhetene/innenriks/article2066114.ece

After that, Agderposten experience to the five in the boat has been bruddskader, kuttskader and easier hodeskader. All five are taken to the hospital in Abuja

Looks like it could be a sea rape tow

Let me show you some more crazy riding in Norway.

Good classic offshore racing. Like it once was done.
Race from Norway to Denmark and back, 126 miles.

20 boats startet, only 3 finished.

Nobody tok the 20 year old record, mostly due to big waves. Reported to be over 8 feet.
So the ride got wild........

The wrecked boat has a puma soccer theme and is owned by a (German I think) soccer star. The boat was in the FPC Key West run last year. (Thursday departure). Last time I saw it it was covered and tied up to the dock in Sunshine Key on the Monday after the races. I believe it had mechanical issues.

Glad all are ok.
