This video shows off a few sample paint jobs as they are switched via the menu, and also some driving around to show you what the particle effects look like. Screenshots don't do it justice. At the end, you'll see the boat skipping at speed... quite the effect. :)
The SW-150 is a sleek, modern, and powerful runabout that seats five.

Touch the boat to bring up the menu.
(Readme) - Gives you this document.
(Throttle) - This toggles between the two throttle modes.
FPS Style: Hold down forward or reverse to move, release to stop. You can adjust the percentage of throttle given in this mode by typing a number (1 = 10%, 2 = 20%, etc.) in chat, or selecting it from the menu option "Throttle" which appears only when this mode is activated. Please note that for the boat to skip, it needs to be at 80% throttle or higher.
Cruise Style: This is for hands-off driving, where the boat drives itself without need for you to hold down any keys. Tap forward to increase the throttle in increments. Tap down to decrease the throttle. Pressing the C or "Duck" key will cut the throttle.
(Kick) - This will bring up a sub-menu where each passenger in the boat is listed as a button. Clicking on an avatar's button in this menu will kick them off the boat.
(Lock) - This will prevent avatars from boarding the boat. If you have passengers already seated when you enable Lock, they will remain seated, but cannot resit if they unsit until you unlock the boat. This is a toggle button.
(Guest) - Brings up a sub-menu with all detected local avatar's names as button. Clicking on a name will enable that person to drive your boat. If they unseat, the boat will delete itself after 20 seconds. They get a limited version of the options menu. You can revoke guest privileges by selecting "No Guest" under the guest submenu. This will kick the guest off.
(Color) - All 22 paintjobs can be accessed here. The paintjobs are divided up into three sections. Guests can change the color.
(Options) -> (Particles) - Toggles the water effects on and off.
(Options) -> (Sounds) - Toggles the playing of all the boat's sound effects on and off.
(Options) -> (Mini HUD) - Toggles the small information display on and off. This hovers over the steering wheel.
(Options) -> (Beacon) - Configure the behavior of the boat's instant messaging locator device. "Toggle" shuts it on and off, "Interval" lets you select how many hours between messages it sends, and "Status" summarizes the configuration. By default this is on, and set to 12 hours.
Type the following into the chat window to activate them. Chat commands are case-insensitive.
Verify that cruise/fps mode aren't things you can type
