Default Bat Boat Modification

Thisis sitting outside over by my buddys shop.I don't know what he has going here but it appears he is putting in some manuevering thrusters.Maybe a future Turbine Bat boat.The way it was sitting outdoors in a questionable area makes me think it is a project put on the backburner.

That boat is one of the ones that Armada (now defunct) made around 1998/1999. Specifically against my agreement with them, they copied the paint scheme that I had on my boat, which I had leased to them for boat shows and promotional work. Some of them were pretty shoddy; others not so bad.
