No, I don't think so. We have run the turbine MTI well into the 2-teens without incident. Think it was a combination of variables including prop rotation, different rudder, side wind at cove, etc. Also, we were running those one-off alky engines more as R&D than anything else. Even with the handling issue, I was very happy with what we learned.

Looking forward to you running those nasty motors in the big boat. Should be something else!!
