I had my first experience on a turbine powered boat last weekend and all I can say is AWESOME! The speeds we ran were unreal (170ish and there was more but he didn't want to push it because it had new bearings!) but what was more amazing was the acceleration. I have been in 10 second drag cars that did not accelerate that quick.

Hey Jeff any chance of getting some video footage this weekend?

I am sure everyone here would enjoy watching that beast take flight.
