Russian TV3 is a nice engine it has a hot end take off, 2200 hp light and efficient although you will need a reduction box.

After seeing the Discovery show on Miss Geico last night I can see how turbines make since in these big boats.

Last time I checked... a freshly overhauled T-53 certified to go in an aircraft was about $290K Now get rid of all that certification and you have a boat motor...
So what's the price on a non-certified "boat" T53 freshly overhauled?
