Default bud light race boat pics

i saw some photos of the bud light race boat from new orleans 3-4 months ago,i need a couple shots of the covers over the bare prop shafts,they were some cool bud light covers that looked like beer bottles,and does anybody know if they were custom or just bud aluminum bottles made to fit?

Hahaha, cool idea.

I remember when a boat with painted valve covers was the sweetest thing I'd ever seen. When the liquid filled Gaffrig speedos came out I was like , after reading Stuart Warners, Nordskogs, and VDO's before that.

Now I could mistake the batteries for a pack of cold ones.

yes , there not using a gear reduction box, so its a 1 to 1 gear ratio, they said the turbines are too close to 100%. There having to go up in prop to get the rpm down to safe 42000.
