Hi, Mom! I was driving home from an art fair today and was on Interstate 10 somewhere between Jacksonville, FL and Tallahassee when I passed a U.S. Customs and Border Protection boat being towed down the highway. It had four 225 horsepower Mercury outboard motors on it. That's 900 horsepower! I was impressed.... Until I got another 100 miles or so down the road and passed another U.S. Customs and Border Protection boat, this one powered by four 350 horsepower Mercuries. That's 1400 friggin' horsepower on a single hull!
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, you can hide from 'em, you can outsmart 'em, but you damned sure can't outrun 'em! At least on the water....
