More pictures "War Machine"

Wanted to get this picture up, Not the best shot but everything is still covered more or less. A picture of the cantilever shock absorbing seat pedestals I have in the boat. These were custom manufactured for this boat (I would assume at great expense) by the original builder, fairly ingenious, uses a white bros. motorcycle shock for dampening. I have not really had a opportunity to test these out as the boat rides nicely in the wave action we have had it out in so far (4-5 footers). Looking forward to some big wave tests this year, we will see how good they are. I have five of these seats, two at each console and one between the bow and the forward console. The Helm seats are out of the boat currently as I am toying with the idea of putting electric Helm seats on these bases that go into a full reclining position. The ladies like to catch some rays when the weather is nice and I like a nice recliner at home so why not? It (the boat) goes back to my "Ace in the Hole" fabricators Hout brothers on Sunday, cousins of a friend of mine who are backyard welders/fabricators the like of which a shipyard would be happy to have! Those damn germans are good!! The other picture is a gratuitous shot of the War Machine logo... I am going to make it a little bigger this year. By the way... I am looking for a pintle mount for a Browning M 2 fifty caliber for the bow gun mount, we have a blanking plate instead on the bow and want to restore "War Machine" to her former configuration for Photo ops etc. etc. If anyone out there has one let me know.

Sadly it doesn't look like I'll be going back to Moscow again. I know a club there (The Jungle Club) where you get everything from a $5 blow job to a cruise missile, if you know the right people. A torpedo might be a bit big for hand luggage though.

The contents of my mothers back garden are strictly private. I am preparing for an assult on the Nab Tower. Once taken, we will declare it a principality and avoid paying any tax.

Do you think it would work for water rates as well? I can't believe how much I have to pay for some water to fill the kettle and have a shower, and to take away my recycled curries!

Tube set away!!

Pic of my buddy Mark next to the truck after we arrived with the tube set at Demaree Inflatable boats in Maryland, about a 3 1/2 hr drive. Putting this thing in the truck was a bitch, Shelly at Demaree says it is 60 oz. material which is the heaviest they use and she wasn't kidding! These sponsons have to weigh between 450 and 500 lbs!
