Default Adrenaline required BBY

"Imagine taking your Camaro, and taking the 300-horsepower motor out and putting a 3,000-horsepower motor in the same car," "That’s what these guys do every day." At 43 knots, the catamaran can sail its entire 72-foot length in a single second — nearly four times faster than the 2007 class. The massive sail generates 7 tons of force, lifting the hull out of the water until the boat’s only connection to the water is a thin hydrofoil known as a daggerboard. Sailors on the Oracle crew say the experience of being on an AC72 as it flies up out of the water is exhilarating.

The ship has officially been re-registered as HMS Surprise in honor of her role in the film. Now at the San Diego maritime Musem as per nikimcbee's pic (above) No degrading 'mudflat' hiatus for her thank heavens! I'm still shaken by the needless loss of completely($3.6million) restored Bounty off Carolina in 2012 with loss of life. Built from scratch by MGM for 1962 movie Mutiny on the Bounty: not P.O.S.H.

The Denis Sullivan is a schooner that is based off the ones that plied the great lakes trade routs. She is a fine looking vessel under sail.

The French Frigate Hermione replica is another one of my favorites. I have a love for frigates in particular and this one is a beauty.

The replica of the HMS Endeavor is another one that is rather easy on the eyes.
