Parnell's Saber is the best I've seen in person.....for offshore boats.


Nothing beats those hydro/drag boats..

I'd say, those are about as big as I've seen. They are about 1/8 mile long!

I wish I had the photo.
But as Angela & I were present in the Boat at the time.
We do at least have the memory.

2002 Smoke on the Water and as Guests of Ancestral Spirit and Parn and his merry band of Pirates.

The tail that he threw that is memorialized in his Avatar was absolutely CRAZY HUGE at that moment.
I've NEVER seen a BIGGER one Before or Since.
Length or Girth.

I think that the only thing more surreal was the fact that he actually wanted to try to swamp the Helicopter following that was taking the photos and REALLY BELIEVED that he could.

Yeah Boy that's our Parn.

Happy Holidays,
Rob..
