Default Have Turbine's, hull required

I have access to a pair of T-58 turbines and are wondering what hull would make the best choice for this project if I decide to go forward with it. Nothing shorter the a 32 & nothing bigger then a 44 & that may be pushing it. I also want to keep the costs reasonable so would be looking a used hull.

Let's here your suggestions.

Thanks,

Steve

The only person I would trust for advise and install would be John Aruda. He has spent years installing these.
If for some reason you decide not to go through with the project, Please let me know. I am intested in buying them.

Bam Bam,
We're putting together one of our 32' Y2K's with a T58 coupled to a Sage #8 surface drive. The Sage can handle 1500 ft.lbs. The deck is almost done and we start the hull next week
Here is the link to the Turbine thread

As far as insurance goes, I think I will have to self insure, some people have said Rick Felson insures turbines but if not I will self insure.

Thanks Rick, looks like a great project you have going with the Y2K. The sage # 8's seem like the right way to go.

Any suggestions for the right hull to run this set up in?

39 ft chris craft stinger w/ arnesons would be awesome if ya dont mind me asking, how much $$$ do u plan on paynig for the turbines? how much $$ do u want to spend overall for the entire? that would make a lot easier to get choices down. where do you boat? do you want just speed? cat or vee? stepped or straight? light or heavy?
