I've seen one of those things on Lake St. Clair back when they were being built up here in Michigan (at least, I think it is the same boat). It was godawful HUGE!!!!!! So big you had to kind of do a double take, make sure your eyes weren't playing tricks on you.

Perfect poker run boat for you and 25-30 of your closest friends!

Seems to me that boat is just begging for a pair of turbines, or maybe some good-sized diesels. Seems almost too big for gas motors.
