Now that is my kinda boat.

After a long day in the shop..A ride in that car to that boat...and all is well.

Fact is...The days in the shop might get a little shorter.

That's just freakin ridiculous. There aren't any rod holders.
Really, that boat looks completely useless.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

I can't imagine you or in fact anyone else that I know of having such a boat. I wonder who WOULD buy it and how often they would use it and what sort of fuel consumption it has.

A boat is a hole in the water into which you pour enormous sums of money.
Happiest days of a boat owner- one when he buys it; two- when he sells it.
Had a boat and sold it about 4 years ago. To many people on the water for my comfort.

Harry... Your posting got me wondering the petrol consumption myself, so I've run some calculations using some rules-of-thumb to get a "breadbox" number. At full-tilt of 55knots [63 mph, 101 kph] (both 4610hp engines + both 5100hp engines running at rated power), fule consumption should be around 1,000 gph (3,800 lph). Dropping back to 43 knots [49mph, 79 kph] and turning off the 5100hp engines would drop you to about half that.

Like a fighter jet, boy are those afterburners expensive! On the other hand, if being chased by pirates, maybe cheap?

As the wealthy would say (like Corvette owners, right BJ? ), since we've gotta ask how much fuel it burns, we can't afford it! <g>
