There is only one purpose for a rig like that... Drug running, no really!!!

You see its not all that fast, relatively speaking, think about all that drag x8 legs are going to cause.

The reason though you opt for sssooooo many outboards is ‘the law’ has got to actually shoot out all 8 engines before you come to a grinding halt, equally so all that deck space can be put to good use, you know for stowing your chosen cargo!!

Taking one of these to WOT for 10 minutes would probably be one of the most fun ways I could squander my life savings!
