here is the boat on the way from TAOD to Turbine Marine
i really hope that this new my way makes it to the thousand islands run.bill is a class act,so is his brother.ihave spent many years around the area.and have seen all of bills boats from the sonic and when ron had his twin engine eliminator to the red challenger to the first skater w/cobras,then finally the change over to the turbines.the whole family has class and deserve the best.when i tried to start my buisness in brockville ron would stop to see me from time to time.and you would never know that his dad had the coolest boat in the whole thousand islands.or his uncle had the coolest apache around.these people are in the sport purely beacause they love it.i just wish that when i started to sell high performance boats in the area.that i had them for customers.these guys are great people
So true....We've talked to Bill @ the last few poker runs and he is very humble.....a true enthusiast of the sport. This new cat is expected to be faster; 225-240mph could be possible. Only 1 way to know....I'd bet he'll be ready for August 11; he is usually given priority service. Can't wait to see him running up the river!!
Wow, nice to read the last two posts. Cheers guys.
oh, Jimmyjr, I bought Ron's red Chalenger from him mid 90's and learned ALOT from that boat ! And from Ron himself too.
Dad still has his Apache, 2nd one now, single step.
We are learning some very important lessons on the race course that will be applied directly to customers pleasure boats. These will make them safer and much faster. I work with Arruda and team on our race boats (Miss GEICO) daily and he does not LIE to anyone. It's not his nature.
If it is humanly possible they do their best to get it done and done right. Most Importantly he wont let a boat out of the shop that hasn't been tested and is safe. Quite a bit of the equipment is fabricated by TM which takes time.
If you are friends of either of the owners of either Hellfire or My Way and plan on riding in them at high speeds I would suggest you let Turbine Marine do their thing.
Once the boat is done and it's getting on plane about to make a 175+ mph run you don't want any second thoughts that it was rushed....
I am assuming this will be the first OL cat to be rigged
Let me think Outloud.
A Michael Peters Design hull... Built by Outerlimits...
Rigged with t53,s by John Arruda.
What a Top Notch combo!
I wish them the best of luck.
