That would look at home in Venice, where they use Boats just like we use cars......

Please note : looking in a Yard full of water taxis... possibly 100 of them, all been repaired, broken up, for sale , serviced , stored etc

I could not find a Mercruser drive, they were mostly volvo stern drives , and Yamaha...... Intresting Observation

Two reasions,... no Mercury Dealer , or they are dont like them

How did and odd boat photo get me on to this rant

RIBase
007?

Not as daft and flippant as it may seem.

The boats used in Moonraker for the chase scenes around the Amazon (actually filmed in the everglades) were Glastrons. I sat in one aged about 10. They were modified for the filming in a small workshop by the upper Thames.

The one in the picture looks like Bonds boat could have been modified from it.

The one that flew through the air over the top of Bonds boat was driven by a later boss of mine - he has the propeller on his wall at home - it was the only thing that prevented him from piling into the opposite bank.

Metalflake paint - Parents used to have a Fairline Phantom 32 with a flip colour silver / blue stripe - fantastic.
