We did, and it still is a possibility. The main purpose of this boat will be endurance record runs. With 4 engines, if we lose one, we can stop pull a couple of props and still run 150mph and finish the run. We also have the motors, tools, and dyno for the T53's. If we go T55's we have to rely on outsourceing for motors and repairs. We are also taking into account the difficulty in obtaining gear boxes for the T55's. We are going to Mystic Monday to sit down with John and talk about all options and we will make a final decision.
PS The fact that nobody has done a 4 turbine boat is also why we would like to do it
