    First off, I can't believe someone didn't want to grab this boat as keep-sake novelty when the movie became a "Blockbuster" that year when the boat would still be in OK shape.

    Appears to be twin engine/prop and for shallow water?

    Maybe they wanted bigger aft deck for little more room.

    What are these boats used for?

    Jaws !!!!!! --- what was that about? That was that bloke in a bowler hat that bit his way through the bars in Fort Knox for that James bond thing.

    You know, that one where that skinny blonde bird had a bikini on backwards and Austin Powers (I think) got stuck in the toilet.

    -------- I don't remember a boat in it!!!
