Sail-World.com : 2,000hp RIB- Light blue touch paper and stand back

2,000hp RIB- Light blue touch paper and stand back

'Light blue touch paper and stand back...'    George Layton

Eight, outboard motors , yes thats eight Yamaha 250hp 4 stroke engines - on a RIB.

Rumour has it that this was a drug-running boat, crossing the English Channel up to three times a week until stopped by UK authorities. 'Just a blur on the radar', we were told. Whatever the real story, we reckon the fuel consumption figures will be as impressive as the array of 2,000 hp tied to the back of this thing.

We will tell you more when we know more.. but in the meanwhile think about the photo caption.Light blue touch paper and stand back
