Heard the tell tales showed 7400 over the weekend. I am surprised they are even still together if that is the case.

We have a 40 Skater here in NJ that consistently runs those numbers.

I assume you mean Callan/Miss Longlite with turbines. I still dont know why they didn't put turbines in Gold digger?? The first OL cat with turbines is going to be the new MY WAY owned by Bill Tomlinson. I bet that will run over 200mph. Has Jet Set officially run over 200mph??? I think thats the boat Pro1 is refering to.

I think the new turbine KiloKat has gone over those speeds.

I,m curious as to the outcome of the 5.0,s that Eikhart
was switching to. I really beleve a 5.0 liter is going to be taxed
at the power output they are looking after.
Its going to need atleast a 11 inch diamiter crank pulley.

Im wondering why they didnt run a big compressor like a r980
or PSI.

If you are interested in going this fast, call John Cosker, @ Mystic Power boats, 386-736-2247,or

http://www.mysticpowerboats.com/home/index.html

and he'll build you one. Better hurry though, the waiting line is getting longer everyday!

BTW, DS and JT's speed of 202.9, was in the 36' Skater, I believe, which is an amazing accomplishment, considering they were only running BIG piston power!

The OL is an awesome looking boat, can't wait to see how she runs.

Good luck, and be safe!
Dean

BTW, this how fast I've been in the Callan C5000, granted they were testing a new rudder that day, and we didn't have a safety boat with us either, so we didn't air it out, but it was AMAZINGLY STABLE!

I have heard that Merc is planned to run the bigger blower rather than the twin screw set up now.

This from a Whipple dealer, so take that for what its worth. Who knows.
