Very coo video. A little scary!!!! I'd say that was a bit too much trim for that rough water!!
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.

Thanks for clearing that up. The NJ boat just did a poker run out of north East MD.

Tvedestrand Norway, to Hirtshals Denmark and back, through the Skagerrak Straits!...Kinda' on the Eastern side of the North Sea. That waters way too cold for me!
I'm sure Nils and Trond from Nor-tech have done this one...

Gino, there was a little bit of info in this thread .... http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...=192258&page=2
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...
