Hey guys,
She will do a shake down Ocean run in Ft Lauderdale in two weeks. Then begin a rigorous one month OCEAN/GULF/LAKE testing schedule to precede her debut in Ocean City MD at The GEICO Triple crown.

This boat is the former Longlite boat it has be gutted and completely rebuilt to make her even stronger and faster. Cosker and team have done an incredible job,

Her new/rebuilt T55 engines dynoed at 3100 HP a piece. She will run a 1/1 gear ratio at 8000 rpm prop speed.

Thanks for your support

The MTI leaves in a week for OMAHA. She will be on display in front of the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders meeting.(you business guys know how powerful that is). They would like to start there...maybe a run next year. btw Thanks for your help setting that plan up. Very Helpful.

Our plan is to make all our runs on biofuel.
