I ran into the website a couple years back. It stated that he had to fabricate everything himself to get the turbine to mate up with a jet-drive. Outlaw Eagles are tough boats. Their website used to have vids of them running rapids, skipping over land, jumping downed trees and using a beaver dam to launch and I mean LAUNCH these boats. They also get raced, sometimes in sprints on courses that would make one puke from all the turning and down rivers in the Northwest with rapids. Those boats have rollcages on them, now that's INSANE. The sport originated in New Zealand I believe. I can't say why exactly he chose that make but nothing accelerates like jet-pump. Besides how many can say that they have a JET...jet boat???
PS: you Canadians are crazy and that's a good thing.

Is Mark the guy who helped design MyWay's shaft braking system, that allows them to shift the drives without shutting down the turbines.....???
