    Default new jet boat

    the navy finally came over to what we already knew - jets rule! this is the independence, 380' long, runs over 40knots, turns on a dime. 2 gas turbines, 2 diesels, and 4 rolls-royce jetdrives (no perpellers). it is a modV tunnel.. pirate hunter...

    Only reason why it's a jet is because of the environmentalist!!! They're afraid it would kill fish so they said they would sacrifice performance to save the precious Red Nose Shark. Good ol Green Peace!!!
