    This unsinkable boat could save so many lives

    Thunder Child capsize test



    Thunder Child's' sea trials in storm force conditions.


    Here's a cool video of 'Thunder Child' undergoing rough weather trials in the recent storms. We managed to get some really great footage of her in 50kt winds and 6m waves, during which she handled fabulously. Happy to say her Caterpillar engines have run faultlessly since launch, essential in these extreme conditions.


    Got to love this Fire Power (look out pirates and drug runners)

  2. Cool as hell!! I seem to remember a tv show in the 80’s with a very similar boat. Only then it was science fiction

    I've been on the water enough to know that a day of calm seas can turn on a dime, and you will be fighting 8 plus ft seas on your way back in, in a matter of minutes. Been there done that!!!

    those beautiful red snappers. If I could just see one live. Our trip down the icw will be postponed again for another yearyear. Last fall meds were not correct. This year more tests are needed.
    Wow.... everything is ready. Impellers changed, zinks, hoses, inverter, etc. all in place. But me and my mate will have to wait another year. Bought a brand new JBL speargun too!
    May sound like I'm crying, sorry. Show those pics please, keeps me dreaming. :)
