Default Fastest Freighter on the 7 Seas

Reading about the target speed bug, I just HAD to see how bad it was.

So...

Auto track freighter.
Send speed to TDC- 8 knots, not too bad
Click send speed 2nd time- 12 knots, uh oh
Click third time= target speed 109 knots ! :rotfl:

Keep clicking and each time get speeds from 101 to 111 knots :rotfl:

Crud, no way my fish can catch her -- but then I ask, where's the hydroplanes and/or the Budweiser logo? Can we have a skin with the freighter painted like a racing boat??
