Some could care less about the subject. They just want to stir things up for the fun of it.

Yeah, I don't get it. When you're in the military, you train for all conditions.

Maybe a model boat forum wasn't the best place to bring it up, but he wasn't wrong; those boats medically retired a lot of SEALs...

The military has always operated at extremes and people have always gotten hurt because of in the air, on the sea and on the ground, doing the toughest jobs using the most powerful of machines.

But we gotta do it because "the other guys" do it. Staying on top of things has never been an easy-chair world. Its the MILITARY.

The fact of the matter is that the boat could do it and do it well-slow the boat down to 35-40kts and its just like any other boat. Speed those other boats up to 50KTS and they will come apart. The injuries occurred early on and design changes were made-like high G seats similar to what the offshore powerboats use-Any EX navy seal that I have communicated with only gave that boat good reviews..

I think Cyclop2 wrote what can be found on Wikipedia too: Even after modifications such as the addition of shock-absorbing seats, the boats are capable of generating up to 20 Gs of force while slamming across waves. This led to many cases of bruises, sprained ankles, chipped teeth, and back, neck and joint injuries. These injuries necessitated a replacement.

Nevertheless it is an interesting boat to model.

So it's not the boat at fault, but the use of it.

Wikipedia lists the Mark V at 65+KTS and its replacement the CB90 /Mark VI is listed at 45KTS-which would you rather drive? Just keep the stick back in high seas unless someone is chasing you-just sayin...

What some seem to FORGET, is the other option at times, is risking getting shot, killed, or captured.....
In these conditions, there probably isn't enough speed or HP available.
After all, we are talking "Special Ops", not your average Marine Unit.

If the mission and the current situation call for it, so be it. Take the pain. That's the job.



But if there is no critical cause for going so fast to or from a mission in rough conditions, then blame the boat operator or the commander who instructed him/her to go that fast. Still nothing here to condemn the craft over.
