THe Coast Guard was using something like this down in the carribean. I remember they had light blue hulls though. They were using two 502's. They had those wild seating setups with belts and all. Looked like a roller coaster ride.

I think the two I'm refering to were actual new units. We were keeping track of them on radar as an exercise. They were being tested. Once it was all over, we met up with them for a minute. It was nice hearing the cackling of the V8's out there in the middle of nowhere. Ship's don't usually sound to interesting. Atleast until the turbines are fired...

Hey, when your making run after run to the islands to help the black market stay in business you need a little shade. You really don't think the tool boxes were for tools, do you?

I have some VHS of a boat that we came across(running the white bricks) down there. It was also about this size and type. It had two Italian diesels and Jet drives. The interior was very simple. The boat was well used.

B-40 I think you nailed it.


We had 2 42's down here a few years ago and the top looks really familiar.

They did have 415 502's and they could not keep engines in them. They boys at Global Marine did all the service work, engine and drive rebuilds.

It looks like Customs is back with midnights running quad 250 and 225 outboards. Works sooo much better and you can get the boats back in service within hours instead of days when you tear something up.
