Yes.

No

Keep trying.

Still reckon they are Cougars - built by VT Halmatic.

Video clip of an open one here.

Well I dont think they are Cougars. Cougars have an open cockpit and a shorter engine bay area. They also have a gun mounting.
They are similar though.

Not yet Biggles. But we are working on it!

I'll give you a clue.
They have Twin Seatek engines.

I'm sorry, but they are triple Seateks.
Looking down into the harbour I could only see two. But there was a third tucked into the port side of the engine bay.

Halmatic VSVs? But don't look like they have the wave-piercing hull (or is it clever camera work?)?

Like Codders, Buzzi sprang to mind at the mention of Seateks though!

I bow to your superior knowledge, O Mighty Fish of the Gar.

I'll get back to sniffing the Nappisan.
