The Sheriff's Department has a Hurricane H920 Cabin.

They matched my speed on the Ashley River as the 3 guys in the cabin all stared me down... I stared back and we did this for about 90 seconds. I gave them an "uh...hey" kinda wave, then they throttled up and left me in their wake.

I think they confused me for one of them. I was wearing a black drysuit at the time with a Mustang Survival industrial 4-pocket lifejacket over it.

The arch does the job! It was mainly to keep radiated power from the VHF antenna away from my head.

Richard- are you trying to impersonate a sheriff again? 🚔

We were testing a hurricane in Connecticut and all of the boats kept stopping trying to figure out if we were cops or not. Then the real cops showed up and asked if they could "inspect" our boat. I think they really just wanted to play with a much cooler toy then they had!

So my boat is famous now.... fun times getting to be a part of a photo and video shoot earlier this summer along with GrantG.

You can see some of the final photos here... It's part of a motorcycle apparel company's new brand rollout.

And yes, we really did strap a motorcycle down inside the boat and take it out on the water.
