    Late 80's Early 90's TV Movie
    I am having trouble remembering the name of a movie I saw on TV back in the late 80's to early 90's. It is about speed boats and drugs. It is not Miami Vice. The only image I have is of the boat the police used. It is a 28'-35' speed boat that I think was painted gray with the teeth painted on the front. It had a retractable roof that inclosed the crew and the inside was red. If anybody remembers this movie, I Need Help.

    Riptide?. I remember they had a helicopter with teeth painted on it, and I'm sure there was a boat.

    I looked that up and it does not seem to be the same thing as I am remembering. This movie was a one night show. It did not have any seasons or more than one episode.

    That is where I have been doing the most searching. Still nothing.

    I was getting ready for the night shift in Florida when the movie aired. I believe the name was Speedboat or Motorboat. Hope this helps.. By the way, the movie started with several speed boats out in open water for a drug pick up. The good guys could not determine which speed boat picked up the contraband and headed back to Miami. One of the two boat occupants stated his relative had worked on the waterway overpass that opened up to allow concealment of boat, passengers and contraband. That was all I saw before turning off the TV... :)

    Could it be "thunder in paradise", wich is a TV series starring hulk hogan? Or maybe some other movie with hulk hogan and speedboats. Because "thunder in paradise" is about speedboats and some illegal drug traficking and stuff, I believe. I saw that a lot as a kid. About the teeth painted on the front I'm not sure.

    It was Thunderboat Row... Cheesy 80's TV at it's best... I'd love to get a copy!
