Default Stories from the Miami BS 2006

Dave Scott's new turbined powered MTI is nuts.

We talked and he mentioned he bought 4 /T-55 Turbines from the defunct Miss Budweiser program, "without the fuel restriction" they had to run in Unlimited Hydro. Mentioned they will start testing from his marina in March. That thing will be FAST.

The enclosed cockpit look like it had 2 inch think glass and built like a tank... I think he got tired of Callan running fast at the shootout.

Very impressive. Congrats Mr. Scott.

The Mercedes MTI thing was sweet too, a little too blingblingy for my skin color. Notwithstanding I don't have the Million and change to jam in a boat so more power to the one that does.

The Skater built Cigarette they ran for the kilo was there and had the drives as well as the stepps shrinkwrapped.

Mr. Tomlinson must of been busy throttling and driving that thing.

Aside form that Cig had two 39's with full cabin and a few 46's no 42's.

Fountain had an impressive booth but there were much more crusiers/fishing boats and so forth than "Cigarette" type boats!
