USA at a guess. That's not unusual to see-they fish the gulf stream 60 miles offshore and want to get there quickly.

It's got 2 flat tyres as well.

The trailer looks right size based on what I've seen before on USA forum. It is probably a 15,000lb trailer or so.

There is a reason for the engine madness there, the prize money for tournament fishing is massive so any time not fishing is literally money down the tubes.

Of course some people just want and can afford it for leisure use..... Fair play to them.
