Rode along on
the boarding of a small freighter coming down the river that leads to
Umm Qasr, the big port town in Iraq. The captain, with his big, thick
glasses, reminded me of a friend of mine from Boston. The Coast Guard
is patrolling this river looking for any escaping Iraqi leadership and/or
Al Qaeda terrorists. This freighter was fine though. Kuwaiti flag. Iranian
crew. Smiles all around.
If you haven’t yet seen the Evo 43 then you’re in luck. This boat uses some really inventive design to amp up function in a sharp dayboat with a nice turn of speed. But when you anchor out, the Evo plays her trump card.
