    I don't know if its real or if you could control it but I'd like to take it out and try it once! :confused2: I'd say it'd be a wild ride!

    That looks like one heck of a river cruiser! Get to your favorite spot in seconds. Imagine the wake that thing must leave behind!

    Whatdya call it when a boat pops a wheelie?

    I have a hunch that's what it'd do... just before it does an endo.

    lol - I better learn boating terminology, eh? :cool2:

    Photo shopped.
    Among 8 engines there is only 2 different shadow patterns on the top of the engine cowlings.
    The wiring harness/fuel line drops dont match.


    This is a twin 250 setup and thats all.

    I would have to agree that its probably a photoshop, I cant see Drug runners using something like this to take 300kgs of Coke. There are smaller boats that move a whole lot more than that. I thought it was a funny pic thats why I posted but put it in general cause its possible some idiot drug runner would think of doing that :big_smile:

    When you look at it like thats 2000 HP and roughly 2000 pounds (a ton) of engines hanging off a single transom its pretty apparent.
    Not to mention the type of boat. Its a utility boat not a speed boat.
    You want to throw it farther out of wack consider that its also roughly 120,000 dollars worth of engines.
    The owner would have to be wealthy and more importantly real dadgum stupid.

    Each one of those lower units would create drag.
    Its not even feasible considering other powering options
