We seem to have an "amazingly cool and interesting aeroplane footage" thread, but not one for boats, so here is one.

I'll kick it off with these.

150mph 50' Nor Tech Car with a jet turbine engine. Hits the gas at about 3:20

Not fast enough? How about a 4,000hp 200mph race boat version leaving the chase helicopter for dead?

Bit too frantic? Maybe Turks and Caicos to Nassau by boat through the Exuma Islands is more your thing.

jeez, i think i'd honestly cack my pants.
think the worst i was ever in was a force 10, but that was on a bloody big ferry on route from portsmouth to bilbao. i was ok, but wouldn't have fancied it much stormier.
we used that boat alot with the lorries, so i got to know some of the crew. 1 of the barman was reassuring me by saying the only time you need to be concerned is when the crew start putting their life jackets on smile
made sense i guess.
i asked if he had ever had to do it, and he said just once, on a new years eve cruise.

How about a 140 foot superyacht?

Nothing new about that? How about one that does 75mph...!
