The Beachcombers may be the ultimate CanCon. It was November 15, 2003 that the Flea posed the ultimate Canadian bar trivia question. What was the name of Relic's jet boat?
The answer? There was more than one jet boat. A Flea-reader wrote to explain (follow that link for the details). Now a yet more definitive answer has arrived via the ethereal tracks of "the internet". There were not one... not two... but seven boats used for the role. You will have guessed that image above is one of them!
This boat's owner writes:
The boats official name is 10k9602. Because they had 7 boats that did this role they just used the number system, most of the boats had 440 engines in them and they were built extremely heavy for jumping and stunts. The one I have was made for the speed shots and is considerably lighter. Also a lot faster. I shall attach a picture of her for you. Unfortunately she is red now as black was not a functional colour on the water.
That is a national treasure. Keep her safe!

Sweet. Put it in a hall with the Friendly Giant's castle and the Butternut Square set.
