The trucks are F-700's, Seal teams and Serect service use them,
the lighter trailer is to reduce weight when transporting on aircraft, most of the time AF C-5's move them team and all.
when stationed in maine, the SS would bring up a couple and store them in a hanger while George SR. was in Kennebunk, along with other toys as well.

Here's the one for sale on E-Bay.....
Navy Seals Boat
I know it's not flashy but it might make a good poker run boat. Sure would turn some heads.

Pres. Bush is supposed to be in Florida (Orlando) on Friday.
Don't know if he's going to any other places.
Wonder if they're bringing them in for security.

2 years ago my brother and I were boating out in the Atlantic, out of Port of Canaveral and 3 of these bad boys pulled up @ the public boat ramp. We had just launched the Velocity and were idleing out and we waited around to see if these SEAL guys were going to run out in the ocean. But they just launched the boats and idled them into the Navy Trident basin. We went boating, came back about 3 hours later and the Seals were putting one of the boats back on the trailer. My bro' went up and started asking them questions, and got a nice reply, "Sir I can't talk about these boats". My brother took his knukle and started tapping on the hull and the SEAL said, "Sir please don't do that"! About then I walked up and informed my brother, "Cut that crap out, or we going to get in deep sh!+!! The Seal driver said, "that's ok, it's just my job to be quiet" He then asked where are the best bars in town, I steered him to Coconuts in Cocoa Beach!

BTW, these boats have underwater exhaust, in the bottom of the boat and they are SOOO QUITE, it's amazing!
