That is the same boat that was in one of the James Bond movies...can't remember which one though...

its in the scene where he's in a bar brawl on some island with a woman and they hop in the boat and take off..and they "run out of gas"...so James tears off a piece... LOL

I believe the 007 boat is on Grand, could be wrong but same paint with "007" on it. Cool paint scheme

Spoke with the owner, (really cool dude) turns out he is rebuilding the boat, it just happens that his shop is behind a car lot!!!
Jamie B. and Sean: You are both right, the boat came from Chicago and it was the boat in the 007 movie.

No - it would not, unless you are comparing it to a large Cruiser.

Maybe on a faulty speedometer - certainly not on GPS.

They must have used both boats in the movie then because the one on Grand has all the documentation saying it was in the movie I believe.

I would think that is, or was Jamie Daus' sp? boat. The name of the boat was "Live Wire". Todd Hartigh knows that boat well as he helped rerig it aound 2001. MR
