Ok fellas, so its not a PT Boat but when I saw her, it sure reminded me of one. All she would need is some weapons. This boat operates out of Boston Harbor and is a 70 foot beauty with 2 Turbo charged Engines pushing water jets. Top speed 40 MPH, 2,800 HP. Her name CODZILLA.........

I'm not sure about the low-viz paint scheme, though....

Maybe Ted could mount a couple of Mk-48s and use it as a SDV...

More like GAU-19/A miniguns and a few good old M2's, and one or two MK 19's will be fine for me.
take care,

There is a boat like that here in Chattanooga that offers River Gorge tours and its is part of the Tennessee Aquarium package I think. But I believe the one here may have enclosed seating as well. Regardless, that sucker flies down the Tennessee River like a rocket. It has a very small wake when up to speed but when getting going and slowing down you better be ready to ride out some waves if you are on a fishing boat nearby.

Cod Zilla here in Boston flies like a rocket. I spoke with them yesterday and it is a 40 minute thrill ride. The boat turns and stops on a dime, with a top speeed of 40 MPH, pushing 2,800 HP.

FRANK;
We have one here in Va Beach, I brought my family out on the one that leaves the pier near the Intrepid in NYC. My SWCC brother SBSC(SWCC/SW) Brad Winegard USN, while he was a reservist, used to run one called "The Spirit of 76" that used to run out of Ocean City, MD. in 1986-87. He had twin Lamborghini V-12's in her and that boat could fly! Now most of them have been converted or built with jet drive.
Take care,
TED
