Default Top Gun on Spike

I was just flipping thru the channels and came across a Jackie Chan movie on Spike. He was driving a Top Gun named Manhattan Express. They ran down the east river and over to the statue of liberty before driving it right into the chase boat and blew it up.

It looked the the boat had dry exhaust. Anyone know the history of the boat?

I caught it too, had just stopped the tape from watching my daily dose of miami Vice reruns to catch the Cig Scene , hit record real quick, and caught the explosion part on tape, but I think I will try to rent or buy the whole movie sometime.
