FACT Boat - Fast Attack Craft Target

01/28/04

Hello Dan,

I wanted to share some good news with you...the US Naval Air Warfare Weapons Division has selected us, Maximum Thunder, to build a Fast Attack Craft Target Boat (FACT Boat)!  We got the award mid December.  I prepared and submitted the bid just prior to Thanksgiving.  The FACT Boat is essentially the boat in the attached photo, without the tower.  The FACT will be capable of a 50 knot cruise through 2-3 foot seas.  It is 50 ft. long, 9 ft. wide, powered with twin diesels coupled to sterndrives.  We are starting on the boat in February and will have it completed in May sometime.  I will forward more photos as the build progresses.
