If they need to do more tests, Clearwater Pass is an extremely target rich environment.

I wonder how hard it would be to adapt one of those to a REAL boat. Probably come back and smack you in the a$$.

very funny.....ha.....ha......ha.
I thought blowing up blowboat was better.

As for mounting a missle, it wouldn't be too hard but you'll need to get a guided type and tracking system to do the job because the Sidewinder is heat seeking.

I'm no expert, but it seems to me a chain gun would be more cost effective, easier to control, and generaly more fun. Fisherman flips you off? Right here buddy! Sail boater give's you that "Your destroing the environment look" as he's cutting you off under power? Step into the crosshairs and smile pal!

Man, I could have just used one of these. We were coming back from a breakfast run and on the last leg towards our marina. Off in the distance was a PWC coming directly at us doing “S” turns. I though, all right, they will break one way or the other and I’ll take the opposite. But they didn’t, so I came off the throttles, dropped the drives and broke left towards the marina. Guess what they did. Yep, turned right into me. Now I had to crank a U turn, luckily I was down to 40mph. When it was over, I held my hands in the air and yelled, “What the hell was that.” They just looked at me like I was from the wrong planet.

Even though we own two PWCs, I would gladly give them up to get all of them off the lake. What pains!

If the chain gun is too heavy, you can always do a "mini" gatlin gun. They will put out 6000 rounds per minute. Only draw back would be all that hot brass flying all over. Probably get cited for water pollution.
