Well now I'm a believer on turbines,I always liked them I just didn't know enough about them until you guys educated me. I'm kicking around the idea of a 55 MTI with a enclosed canopy if he'll make me one with at least 2500hp aside. I think it would be a good package.

This is my boat. LTS-101, 750 hp. 27' Daytona that I built for the lake. Nothing like it. Different feel from piston boat, but that isn't bad.

What turbine is that? Anyone have experience with the PT6?

How fast does the eliminator run? How do u stop and go? Gear reduction?

What is your experience with the Sage drive? How many installs have you done with it? Any failures? How is the response compared to a merc 6.

The boat runs 112 mph at 800' above sea level.
It has the engine brake on it like the gentleman said in
the above post. If you look at the pics. the switch on the
side of the shift lever engages and disengages the brake
so you can shift from forward to reverse.
As far as the gear resuction, I don't really know what it
is but it is redused to what a normal piston boat would
rev to so I can run normal props.
My installation was done by MTT, Ted McIntyre.
And the engine is a Lycoming LTS-101.

Lostinboston,

No practical experience yet myself although they are on boats that are out there... anyone else have the hands on report?? Got a set going on our next boat. Based upon the design spec and having had my hands on this set now in the shop to examine in great detail I am so far very impressed with their construction. The set we have here, apparently had a few upgrades since the original ones were built and we are very excited to be using them on this build.
