Wow... variable geometry dead-rise on the 51 footer... I think that means it has trim tabs... Hey did anyone notice that it has ZF transmissions... good thing Germany is our friend for the time being... I'd hate to end up in a war with those guys again since they make the guns for our tanks and may now be supplying the transmissions for gun boats...

This place is about 5 mins from my house. I may ask him If I can take a loaded patrol boat out for a Test ride but tell him I want the BIG guns on board when we go!

I'm confused on that

maybe he means that the mexicans building the boat may build it varying what day it is?

The website designer needs to learn how to spell. The owner's name (Dennis) is even spelled wrong!

Just what we need -- a drunk postal employee on a gunboat.

If it was rigged by Dennis it will probably fall apart while patroling.

If they've really built one of these, why aren't there any real pictures of one?
