      I like the placement of the boat; even the gulls have a frantic flight pattern; great moment, Mike

      That is not a fiberglass boat, that is a 47 foot motor life boat, this boat can completely turn over and come back up again. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibPLFkEpMrM&feature=related

      BTW, I was in the coast guard in 94 when this boat first came out.
