The ad pretty much says it all...

http://www.offshoreonlyclassifieds.c...o15779-en.html

it is a brand new 50' nortech.. never been on the water... never been rigged for anything. We have the engines / drivetrain in house right now just waiting for the interior to get finished at Nortech.

These are absolutly the nicest engines ever to go through our shop. Zero timed with dyno run sheets rung out to Aerospace standard or better. 1500hp each and with the possibility of upgrading to 2000hp by next year for an additional $8500 each (Get the boat bought by the end of April and it includes FREE software upgrades for the TECC, normally $2500)

We are ready to rig, and the build slot is still open... could have this boat up and running early to middle of summer no problem. (If it sells now and we get it in here on time...) Somebody stands to get a wicked turbine NorTech... move quick though.

Any specific questions you might have please call me toll free 866-790-7702

Rocketboat,

Where's your shop? We're just up the beach from you at Wymbolwood. How come I've never seen or heard a turbine boat ripping on Georgian Bay? Heh . . .

We are at the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport... right between Barrie and Orillia on hwy11. Hangar on the North side of the airport. Going to have this Nor-Tech on either Georgian or Simcoe this summer... I'll post around and let everyone know when we are going out to test. PM me and get me an e-mail address and we can get you over to see the shop if you are interested...

You arer correct. Aqua toy store was Turbines Marine Inc first install.
The problem however was that they AquaToy store groupe supplied us with there own engines. The engines had been sitting in a military engine can for the lasr 10 years.
They where never serviced, then by there orders installed in the newley rigged boat.
The result of that, was where all the problems came from.

When you test in simco or geo. bay can you post it before hand?

I would drive the 2hrs just to see and hear it run!

Please

Rocketboat, I'd definitely like to know when you are testing that boat. I'm from right around the area, can't wait to see the first turbine I've seen in those waters!
