That's cause the verado's can't take being run hard !!!!

I'm far away from the action guys, but I thought that the Powers that Be over there wanted all gasoline off their parent boats ASAP - hence the move to multifuel outboards and big diesel inboards?

You mean like this?

The family and i were driving from Cap Cod, MA to Long Island, NY a couple years ago and took the ferry from Bridgeport to Port Jefferson. Turns out the Clinton's were on board the ferry after their daughter's wedding. There were two CG escorts who would intercept boats passing in front of us and always managed to say something that made the U-turn and go a different direction in a hurry
Perhaps it was the mounted and uncovered M249(?).

We also had a couple steely eyed secret service and a couple coasties with little black backpacks that look like they were going to crush them.

A friend and I (and about 5 or 6 others) were off to do a night dive at a site about a mile and a half from the boat ramp in Monterey. Unfortunately, my buddy mistook a scum line for the fuel level in his tank, and he only made it halfway out. Took him and his pax's in tow, and we decided to dive the Barge, which is just outside the harbor. Positioned him on the site and had him drop his hook, then offset a bit and dropped mine. All of a sudden we were lit up. A CG 25 boat slowly circled us twice, keeping the spotlight on us. When it was off my boat and on Jeff's, I could just make out the guy standing at the M-249; hands on, but not aiming at anything. I didn't think to make a radio call, and they never tried to contact us; they just circled a couple of times, and continued into the harbor. Interesting start to the dive.
