I believe you're correct. They were all at Skaterfest that day.

Call John Cosker @ Mystic Powerboats, he has designed and rigged quite a few turbine powered cats and v-bottoms. His office # is 386-736-2247.
Good luck,
Dean

I have temporally set up the drive on the back of the boat to show you the stern tube angle and prop height how does this look?

I spoke to turbine marine they said a good stating point would be a prop hub height of 2.5" above the inside of the sponsons with a sterntube angle down of around 3-6 degrees.

Turbines are a lot softer on drives than big diesels or supercharged petrol's. If you check the chart they advise you call for turbine applications.

I have run Arneson drives on all my boats over the years many of which engine torque has far exceeded Arneson recommendation, to date I have never had one fail they are a bulletproof drive system simple but super strong.

Don't mean to hijack, but was Jet Set running as often as usual this past summer? In past years, I saw him just about every weekend on the bay. This summer, I never saw the boat once. Now that I think about it, I haven't seen the boat in person with the new paint.

I only smelled him a few times this summer.

I hope the new 46 JetSet is ready for this summer.

Ron is it that bad?
Any idea what size fuel tanks he has on board that thing must be burning at least 200gph at full tilt.
