One Tough Outboard
When it comes to building motors for the Special Forces, Raider Outboards can’t afford to fail.
Five pararescuers peer out the wide cargo door of a KC-130 more than 1,000 miles off the coast of California. From the vantage of the large military aircraft, the Ocean Applaud, a cargo ship, looks like a toy bobbing in the Pacific Ocean several thousand feet below. It’s late August and the rescuers have been called in to recover an injured sailor who has fallen more than 30 feet.
