I think the sequence of picture uploads is the last upload is the first picture of your post.

Great to learn about the fast steamer, I thought the 4000 horsepower quadruple expansion triple reheat yacht "Arrow" had the record for speed.
Thanks for the tip.

I believe Arrow still holds the official record as her top speed was officially recorded at
39 knots, equating to about 44MPH... I believe the talk about records for Cero II was for any boat of that length (or in a certain length range?) in the US, and it was in MPH.

A replica of either would be amazing... Though, Cero seems a bit more attainable.
