    Navy-50-mph vessels use steerable waterjets instead of propellers and rudders

    Its amazing something this large can move so fast

    "Independence, a 418-foot warship built in Alabama, boasts a top speed in excess of 45 knots, or about 52 mph, and sustained 44 knots for four hours during builder trials that wrapped up this month off the Gulf Coast"
