        WOW! That thing needs a big lake. It hardly got up to speed before he throttled back. Looks like a dangerous weapon! It could give those Somali pirates a bit of a shock! Just imaging half a dozen dropped over the side of a ship and controlled by crew members.
        Stop messing about - just get a Sub-driver!

          Its funny! When you think of Pirates, your mind conjours up visions of Capt. Jack Sparrow and his Swashbuckling crew! Then you see these pictures of these pirates from Africa. Youd think that they would at least dress the part!

            These are RMCK hulls out of Korea. Notice the one with the forward exhaust. A novel idea

              Have never been into Glow/nitro or diesel engined boats, by I do like Gas turbines, and steam.

              Here's a neat link that followed on from your one-

                Unrelated to this thread, but found as a follow on link to the above film, very interesting amphibious machine from 20:41 onwards.

                  Love the Jet turbine video! That is flippin' awesome!
                  If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                    GT's run at the correct speed, so they sound right :)

                      Subculture, I actually saw one of those things in South Florida on a truck, chained down , probably headed to the everglades. It looked like it was in regular service and not an experimental surrounded by Police and company officials. I was under the impression that it was in regular service. Of course, it was of manufacture other than the USSR., Im sure.
