The XSV 17 Thunder Child Is Literally Unsinkable

The XSV 17 “Thunder Child by Safe Havenmarine is a boat designed to perform in the harshest of weather. It can even flip itself upright if it’s ever capsized. While watching this thing in action it almost feels like an R.C. toy because it’s so impervious to waves and flipping over.
