How the hell do they steer that Crompton. The tubes are hard up against the two outside motors?

Impressive photo's though.

Unfortunately all the big fast drug run boats have been banned now - apparently the Spanish were whinging again!!!

Gib police have some nice big 10m ribs with 2x 225 mercs fitted(will post some pics soon) - also found this link about them having a Redbay but that was in 1999 - didn't see it when i was last there.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/366644.stm

Love Gib - really great place and the people are SO friendly if you are a Brit. The spanish HATE Gib with a vengance - no road signs - not marked on maps - even the dialling code is screwed so if you are in Spain with a mobile you can NOT dial the Gibralter dialling code - you have to use a special Spanish one instead that is hard to find!!!
