Seriously?

How do you afford all this?

Lotto winner, or is the towing and recovery business that good?

Looking forward to the thread.

My sea trial and survey on my prospective new 7M is in a week.

What is a OTH, and why are they rare, or not seen in public hands?

OTH, Over The Horizone. is a zodiac 733 Hurricane that has been built to be a launch for coast guard cutters for offshore interdiction. they were mostly made out of fiberglass but their most recent models were made of aluminum the one we are going to build is a 2007 which is rare to see one that new in to public circulation. they are fast, nimble and very durable.
