I think it's been on for longer than 6 months ........................... Those are quite old Italian V8's and I reckon the fuel consumption will not match the performance, especially compared to more recent V8's. The surface drives are also interesting, the boats are well respected - it's a 36 Offshore if you're interested. I did consider it - I asked peoples thoughts on it on here a little while back and discounted it as replacing the engines would have been an expensive operation, however if you have some diesels that would fit or a cheap source of petrol it would be a great boat!

If that's the same one I'm thinking of it's been around for a while now. If I remember rightly there was something distinctly "off" about one of the engines on the video clip. No water out of one of the exhausts I think- but I could be wrong, I usually am (just ask the wife!) Too lazy to double-check...

As I said above - fuel consumption versus performance - how fast does he say it will go? If I'm tipping gallons of fuel into an engine I like to think I'll be going quite quickly!
