Interesting Boat

Post by Fat Cat »

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/POWERFUL ... 500wt_1182

This is listed on EBAY in FT. Laud. Not real sure bout the design but look close at the pics. Its very obvious someone put a heck of alot of work into it. The fabrication is pretty good. A litttle outta the box but still clean. Imagine what they could do with some guidance??
Heck of a set of headers. Not too sure bout the steering wheel though. Also it has a multitude of coolers on it, Not sure what for though.
Bet it slides like a bitch with that flat bottom...
