Check out the Honda Marine Home Page. There are 2 Boston Whaler 13 Sports headed to Venezuela. So far they have made it to Great Exuma. The total trip is 1700 miles. Both boats are powered by 40HP Hondas.

Crazy old farts from Bradenton, FL. God Bless them. There is a post on it somewhere here.

Just for sh**ts and grins, Brunswick should sponsor a couple of 13 Sports with the new Mercury EFI 40 HP four strokes. They could follow these guys on to Venezuela.

That or the Honda's could go and rescue them when their Merc's fail....

I guess they feel the Hondas aren't too heavy, and offshore too, in 3 to 5 ft seas.
I feel reasured about putting Doel Fins on now that I looked this up and noticed that the Hondas used for this adventure have Doel Fins on them.
It is a nice combination Whaler, Honda, and Doel Fins. I am Happy to have it also.
Thanks, made my day!
