These are Navy Seal boats. I see them in our Shipyard all the time. Lots of tight security. They only move them around in the yard on swingshift. They come in on Semi flatbeds with trailer attached then are unloaded by crane and moved on trailer from there.

Talking

If these have motors built by Innovation, they are experimenting with some really 'bad ass stuff", we would all love to have some of the big stuff they are building for our US Govt. How about 700 + inch big block, with 900+ HP, that run on under 80 Octaine, yes its true, they are building that kind of stuff, because you can't get half way decent gas in "most" parts of the world. Hook one of those motors up with some good ole Sunoco ultra 94 and you got over 1000 HP and over 1000 lbs of toque at 4500rpm, but remember, this project is being funded by the biggest pocketbook in the orld. UNCLE SAM. We all should just dream!

Default Navy Seal Rigs

Also known as HSB's "high speed boats"... I saw one for sale somewhere recently..Freind of mine was a seal ..He said they'll run them right up on shore at speed if its a one way mission. Not sure whos making them for the gov. but theres a bunch of them out there ..Almost looks like a Cougar

Damn that is cool. Thanks very much for stopping to take the pictures and sharing with us.

Just a couple of thoughts here.

1) Looks like a Myco trailer with holes drilled for less weight?
What would be the purpose of that, especially with those killer trucks?

2) No steps, pads, beaks or bull?
Big horsepower, but how fast?
Why would they not use stepped hull boats? Handling issues?

3) What outdrives do you think those are?

Inquiring minds want to know
