Since this has turned into an thread on Special Operation Craft I'll join in. The MK V and RIB's pictured are being phased out. Replacement crafts have not been decided upon and the debate is ongoing what type of replacement is needed to fit the current operational needs.

P.S. SmurfOnABoat, I like your title for your pic just don't forget who "drives" them and who "rides" on them.

There was/is a one here locally in NC (near Lake Norman)...pretty sure it was twin Jet Drive version.

Don't have a great pic, but look in the upper right hand corner of this pic... IIRC the mechanic at this boatyard got it and was restoring it.

Default Hi Darrell (X-Navy Seal, are you still around???) This post is old, but I have ???'s

The HSB's will handle tasks that would simply crush a normal pleasure boat. Imagine slamming a pleasure boat up against a 900ft ship in the black of night, traveling at 15knots, with 10ft swells beating against it. This would crush the gunwales of a normal pleasure boat.The HSB took it in stride.They are great boats for the mission they were assigned. No, they are not the fastest boat out there, but they will handle SERIOUS weather with ease, and still get ya home. I've been in the HSB's maintaining 60 knots in some very, very nasty seas. Just a few cool features of the boat... each motor had two separate ignition systems. If one failed, simply switch to the secondary ignition and keep running.

As for the outboards, I'm not too sure on that. These are very heavy boats, and I don't think outboards are the way to go.

BTW. I still have a copy of the US Navy maintenance/service/ rebuild manual for the Innovation 557 motors for the HSB's. I could copy it if any owners were interested.

Darrell.
I have photos of 2 x different 39' SEAL HSB Models, and I cannot find any information which lets me know which is which, or which is older, or which performs better (aka which is faster). Could you get back to me directly, at: [email protected] That way I can send you photos. I'd GREATLY appreciate any help. Thanks, ~Mark~

The reason the boat is not as heavy as it would appear to be, is that is was parachuted out of the back of a C-130. The parachute attachment points are still there.

Here is a pic with it decked out with its 50 cals
re install the 50 cals
