Exclamation Hi-Perf. Boaters Be Prepared For Boardings

Last night NY ABC Channel 7 reported that the terrorist's plans for attack on the USA homeland were to be using speed boats. They had plans to carry out an attack on the Prudential building in downtown Newark, NJ using a limo by pulling into the parking garage filled with explosives.
Other plans include speed boats in the harbor area. If I recall correctly, the UN building is on the East River...
Just what we needed to hear with the upcoming race on the Hudson which is on the weekend of Sept. 11th.

In my opinion, be prepared for boardings anywhere. Be nice to the coasties, they are only doing their job to help protect us all.

With the latest intelligence our guys got with the latest captures, I strongly feel they helped stop some of the terrorist's missions.
God Bless them!
They are doing a great job!!!

I was thinking the same things when I heard the news, Tim. And, I totally agree; better to cooperate than think they're not doing their jobs!

And in June I was only 100yards from the Statue of Liberty and there was not a patrol to be seen. 100 yards could pass very quickly at 60mph+. Especially w/ a bow full of explosives. But then the boat wouldn't run right.

I think you'd spot a bow heavy speed boat pretty easily.

I would think you could pack a cruiser with much more in explosive then a speed boat
