This would be a sure cure for who ever
wants to terrorize Texas waters
Let the drug dealing fucks get a taste of that. Just run it up and down the shore on their side and blast the hell out of everything that gets in range.
I agree, we would have to update the power trains to make them fast enuff to catch the drug dealers boats.
Some of these were made just south of my home town in Michigan. They were subcontracted out to Chris Craft to make during the war. They used to take them up to Lake Huron for testing.
I went camping-fishing-skiing at lake belton a few times. not much on the lake in the way of marinas and such at the time. We ran out of ice so me and my nephew jumped in the boat and headed to the store across the lake. About halfway there a couple of these things come bellowing across the open water towards the marina. I figured theres no sense in crowding the guys and throttled back. They tied up at the dock, one guy went in an returned in about 2 minutes. opened the doors on the ice machine and formed a line. Emptied the sunbeech in no time. boarded and took off back toward the base.
I went to town in the pickup later for ice.
