G8 boat chase GREENPEACE

Check out this video of a boat chase by the feds at the G8 conference. Boat load of tree huggers picked the wrong day and the wrong guys to mess with.

http://www.reuters.com/news/video/su...ions_cuts_deal

The end move is called the Hamilton power turn. I used to do those on a 120' footer for kicks..............tell me you wouldn't be crapping your pants.

can you explain this "power turn"....I guess I didn't see it. Was it when the douches in the little boat got knocked out?

That's an Agias class cruiser I believe. Should have twins in the neighborhood of 3000 HP with direct couplings to Hamilton Water Jets out of New Zeland. Basically, when the motors are running the jets are moving water with 1:1 reduction. The reverse bucket is used to hold a "neutral" postion. From full throttle forward to Full reverse is a mater of 1-1.5 seconds at full thrust. You must turn the vessel to keep the jets from ripping out of the transom form the raw power. Ours used to bury the bow form the downward reversing thrust. Wicked awesome fun, our 120' used to top out at 25kts, I'd be this guy is 50+.........and I don't think he was using all of it. I've seen the 140' class hydrofoils go over 90.:confused2

lol. no they didnt. they got exactly what they wanted, exposure. the orginazation is greenpeace. they are actually pretty cool dudes. they do stunts like this all the time, theres a bunch of videos showing them zooming up to an oil rig and slapping on a greenpeace sticker, etc.

even videos of said oil rig workers trying to harm them, dropping barrels on them (lol). the whole bit is always recorded and leaked onto the news. basicly its a media stunt.

allthough thats not all they do, their "fleet" consists of more than just speedboats, they have a few science vessels too. big boats with labs and such to study marine biology and what not.

haha. naw. their whole deal is they are non-violent. all they do is put stickers on things, or put themselves in dangerous situations and cause a scene.

it actually makes them look like a martyr if they get shot at, rammed, have things thrown at them, people try to sink them, etc...

it is my opinion that they are a bunch of extremists. . .and if they are harmed during any of their "stunts", they get what they deserve.
