Yeah, the Vector Vulcan hardboats were mainly used for smuggling in Gib, it was good business for Vector. A friend of mine whom you might of known, was out there flogging the smugglers hulls and engines to replace the ones that were grabbed by customs.
Vector were in trouble around then and everything was being flogged off. Alastair Heane was up there fannying about about that time.
