That's ridiculous. What is the deal here? Where did you get this photo?
A friend emailed it to me today. No details on where the photo was taken. I believe it is for real. If you like the old days of "NO" outboard power, take a look at this hand powered clamp on. Weve come a long way.
I've been looking at that picture all day and wondering what it's for. Color makes me think military of some sort. Looks like radar on the front. I was thinking oil field, but it doesn't seem to have any kind of towing bits, not alot of seating either. But obviously meant to get wet! Guessing around 18-20ft beam, around 45 ft long. Any chance it might be part RHI?
Interesting boat, if anyone finds out who it belongs to and what it does, please post it.
That boat was designed for one purpose. Get there fast and return in any sea condition. I doubt the boat has much of a range assuming it burns about 200 gallons per hour. I would guess about a 1000 gallon fuel tank. That's about 5 hours running time.
Probably owned by NASA, Military, or an energy company. Not intended to fish, haul, or pull. That sucker is made for hauling either a few people or very expensive parts. Most probably a rescue boat. All I know is I would sure like to take it out for a spin. I would guess it tops out around 70 knots. Probably looks like a huge flounder skipping on the water.
