It is the turbine. The crew says that it sounds more like an F1 car than a boat. Very pleased with testing so far. JT and I are taking it one step at a time. Making more changes before another session. Still trying to get my hands on a better video that I know is available.

You are absolutely correct. The 187 mph printed on our signature card is the highest speed we have run the piston boat in race trim versus a kilo or top speed setup.
