Default Check this out...Rotary Engine Boat!!

My buddy has an RX8 and was playing on a web site and found this, so of course he sent it to me. Some pretty sweet videos. Not really offshore but this boat moves!!!

Those things can get out some sick HP to weight numbers. I started to put one that was about 450hp in a little pick up once but then sold it to some one else.

There used to be a guy running a single seat sand rail with a twin turbo wankle rotary in it. One guy could lift the thing off the floor... it went REALLY fast in the sand let me tell you!!!! Baker Engineering (they build tyhe Cat Can Doo race boat engines among others) and said it was approaching 500 hp!! Yeah baby!!!
