    Cool Miami Vice Boats: Sonny Crockett's Talon!

    The episode was Mirror Image, season four. The Talon with twin Bridgeports enters the show at the very end, with Crockett shooting somebody, then taking off in the boat. What was cool about this show (in addition to a Talon being used) is that the real sound of the Bridgeports was kept, and the studio didn't overdub big block offshore-sounding exhaust for the boat, like they did with almost all other outboard-powered boats in the show.

    I wonder what the fate of this boat was...

    Very cool Greg.
    One of my pet peeves in boat scenes is the audio over dubs' for the O/B's. Almost every scene is that way.

    One of the funniest ones was Water World w/Kevin Costner where they used Harley audio for their jet ski's! I saw it at the theater and thought I was getting thrown out for laughing so loud..

    Again, cool find Greg. Kinda neat too that a pair of Bridgeports on that Talon would have been the top of the O/B food chain in those days.
    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.

    Miami Vice was the best show ever, the boats they used just made it that much better. Nice find Greg, thanks for sharing!

    I was watching that Whale Wars show about the tree huggers and they did the same thing. The outboard ribs sounded like had NASCAR motors.
