Marquette – March 16, 2015 – Once the ice leaves Lake Superior, this would get us to Stannard Rock and catching the big ones quickly. I wonder how fast we could get to Stannard Rock? We certainly could get there from Marquette Harbor on a calm morning before the wind & waves came up. Let’s see; 48 miles divided by the speed of light? hmmm?
A 2,000 HP… An Outboard Inflatable … the latest drug runner toy from Europe …
I am told this thing belts across the English channel 3-4 times per week and was just a blur on the radar of the British Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard was so astonished by the speed of the unknown craft, they brought in a special high speed helicopter to chase it. Yes, we are told drugs were found on board. Of course one would think you’d have to be on drugs to put the throttle down on this thing.
