    Yes, it was a drug smuggling boat & I do believe they caught it somewhere in the English Channel. They have the pic posted in one of the local boat shops around here.

    I've seen it too in the past, believe it did have something to do with drug smugglers.

    But, ya know what?

    _That boat has the makings of an awesome catfishing boat. Just think of the rod holders you could put on that thing.

    _ If the weather is bad? You got some place to get out of the weather.

    _ No problem finding a place for that Livewell. Just find a spot on the back forty! looks like plenty of room for a 200 Gallon aquarium, also.

    _ Instead of having those uncomfortable fishing seats. Just put about a half dozen of those captain chairs in.

    _Not fast enough? plenty of room to swap out for 7 or 8 of those Yamaha 350's. Should do the trick.

    The possibilities are endless.:wink:

    Heck! Imagine the wake that boat must kick up. Those catfish would be flying into the boat like those flying Asian carp. Who needs a rod and reel, when a boat like that travel across the water?!!LOL!! I agree, that boat has catfish possibilities written all over it. Nice looking rig!!

    I wonder why they have 4 motors low and 4 raised up higher. Maybe run 4 in deep water and other 4 are for shallow water like beaching it? Or maybe it takes 8 to get it up on plane loaded and 4 to maintain it and save fuel??

    They stagger the motors due to the V shape in the hull. The outside motors would be to far in the water.

    Yeah I couldn't imagine a 30x60 foot boat running at 70mph, that's pretty impressive. I wonder if they couldn't squeeze any more mph outta there by changing the prop size. :roll_eyes:
