Damn... Do you think that the guy on the right gets more bow lift, transom lift or do you think it just lists to one side, all the props are turning right...
Actually one of them swing to the left, but I don't really think it is effective,

What is the story with these boats????? Do you have any other Info??? I see (2) it looks like there is a third over to the right? is there a Pic. I guess if they can't get a few started in the morning it doesn't matter, they still have enough runniing.

Damn, that throttleman must be pretty skilled to run 5 sticks like these.

look at where the radars are mounted, just a quick does of radiation and cancer everytime you turn the darn radar on.

How would you throttle those things up, you would need two throttle men.

Arn't those the seal boats that we've been seeing? But the poor condition of the boats doesn't look military. Check out the chunk that's missing from the 250.

anyone notice the piece of line used to hold up the far port engine on boat on the left.

Jeez, those have been abused, poor things.

you can never have too much horsepower, that's for sure, but to answer the question, 5 is too many. If you have to throttle with your entire forearm, it's too many.
