Details of a Boat Jump
It warms the ol' pipe tobacco that there are other admirers of Striking Distance out there. I found this website that goes into great detail about the boats (Chris Craft Capris) used in the filming of the movie and some great little tidbits about the dramatic boat jump scene near in the final chase sequence. Did you know they actually had multiple boats take multiple jumps off of Dam #6 on the Allegheny River? I sure didn't. But I'm so glad I know now!
Enjoy this site at called Century Classic Power Boat, (I'm a little jealous we didn't call our site that actually) at http://www.centuryclassicpowerboat.com/allegheny/all22.htm
