One question, what the heck were they doing with those 5 gallon gas cans? That wouldn't be enough fuel for me to start the boat and untie the ropes.
Could the small cans be Octane booster of some kind, if it has 700's they need 93 don't they?

I think it is a 40 with 700's.

I'm not sure why somwbody would copy a known boat. I loved the old INXS boats, love your Mercedes boat, SpeedRacer, and the look of XXX, but I would like to think I'd be able to design something that was my own if I had the chance...
I agree it's silly to copy a known boat, but probably not well known in Europe. WAY too much trim

93 isnt really a tall order in the EU, most stations carry 100 octane.
