Saw 4 of these yesterday heading south on the intracoastal waterway in Stuart. They were like the ones in Von Bongo's pictures, there is a Nuke plant about 15 miles North of hear , maybe they were part of some added security. As I watched them pass me ( I was heading North, they South) I noticed that the number 2 boat was towing the number 3 boat. I turned around to watch them get on plane after passing the bridge, the number 2 boat got on plane and towed number three at about 50 mph, like nothing. They were very quiet. Never seen them before, this was a timely thread.

Way cool.........

How come the east coast has all the bad a$$ secret stuff going on? that's just not fair! I did make it over to see the yard in southern West Virginia with the ex-govt boats. COOL

reminds me of the "Sternpowr" drive.the gov had them under a 15 year contract and they could not show or sell to the public until the contract was up. One hell of an outdrive.tough, rugged...but does take a lot of HP away fromt he engine

I'm glad these guys are out patrolling the nuke plants.
At the same time it's kind of scary to think what they could be after.

Sternpower drive? Wasn't that like the Konrad drive now available for high torque motors?
