Yet Aronow's company U.S.A. racing was supposedly owned by Super Chief South a sub corporation of the Kramers, who were... are you ready for this? Drug smugglers... It's hard to say who killed Aronow, he was a friend of George Bush sr. (sold him a boat) and was awarded the government contract to build the customs boats. If word had gotten out that as vice president G.W. had awarded a contract for building boats to catch drug smugglers to the drug smugglers he probably would not have been elected President. Aronow may have been silenced by certain political organizations or the Kramers, we probably will never know for certain.
Incidentally the Blue thunder was a pig, It never was anywhere near as fast as the Apache or Cigarette boats at the time.

A link relating to the post above, makes interesting reading http://www.tarpley.net/bush20.htm
A great read: "Blue thunder" by Thomas Burdick.
A must read for any boater, an excellent investigative look at the darkside of the South Florida offshore powerboat scene in the 80s. Politics, drugs, murder, intrigue!

IMO, it had a very dumb storyline which went nowhere, but the abundance of ultra cool boats & planes and hotties more than made up for it. Definitely worth watching.
